This is a plea to the Scottsbluff Marathon, Grand Island Marathon, Lincoln Marathon, Omaha Marathon, Heartland Marathon and Nebraska Marathon.

Please join forces and agree to provide a $10,000 bonus to the next male and female residing in Nebraska that qualifies for the USA Olympic Trials Marathon with the “A” Standard.  2:15 for the fellas, 2:37 for the ladies.

Incentivize them.  Make it worth the hours and months of training and racing.  THEY WILL STEP UP IF THEY KNOW THE SUPPORT IS THERE.

If they hit those marks they deserve it.  If you don’t agree, you’re probably in the wrong sport.
