The half marathon is a point to point race in the middle of the Nebraska Sandhills! Runners are bused to the starting line, and enjoy a beautiful run in to the village of Arthur. The course is a single lane blacktop road, consisting of rolling hills (along with a couple of substantial hills) winding through local ranches. There will be water/aid stations every 2-3 miles as well as porta-potties along the route. Runners will be cheered to the finish line at the park in the village of Arthur, and awarded a unique finishers medal as well as a free meal!
The 5k is an out and back course starting and finishing in the town of Arthur.
