Nebraska’s newest marathon will debut April 27, 2019.  This race will be the only USATF Certified and Sanctioned, completely closed road course marathon in Nebraska!  It has also been painstakingly designed to achieve the designation as “Flattest Marathon In The World”.  With only 21′ of elevation it replaces Berlin and London which both are 22′ plus.

December 6, 2018 update.  We continue to work  with the City of Valley and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Dept.  Primary to our cooperative efforts is the 5 hour time limit.  Our course has undergone some changes that will benefit your efforts to run to your potential.  Race Director Tristan Nelson calls it a race track.  Tristan attended the USA Track & Field annual meetings in Columbus, Ohio last week to find new and better ways to serve runners throughout Nebraska and the entire U.S.  USATF Certification and Sanctioning will be in place as soon as weather cooperates with the measurement process.  Thanks for checking in and stay tuned for more updates as they come available.

This will be your absolute best chance to qualify for the Boston Marathon or set a lifetime personal best.  The morning also includes the Valley 7 Lakes Half Marathon and 5 person Ekiden Style marathon road relay.
