Many of you will be toeing our start line tomorrow morning. If you are in this sport as a competitor selecting the right race is as important as any other component of your training cycle. Valley ONE Marathon was created for you.
I’ve always insisted on a completely closed road course marathon in Nebraska. It just didn’t set with me that you put runners on a sidewalk and call it a road race. Stood on my stump and hollered for nearly two decades, extolling the virtues of Real Racing. To give serious athletes the very best opportunity to run to their potential. Valley ONE Marathon was created for you.
That clarion call being answered now by runners from across the United States.
Valley ONE Marathon, bringing national respectability to road racing in Nebraska. In appreciation of, and with all due respect to those that came before, this race is raising the bar for marathoning in the United States.
We’ve forged this race, this competitive venture, as a harbinger, a reintroduction of the essence of our sport. Real Racing and Potential Realized. Valley ONE Marathon was created for you.
It starts with your training. And then which race you choose to run. No matter your decision, Runners Take Your Marks!
