Presented by HITS Endurance, the 41st annual Omaha Marathon is not just a race for the avid runners crossing the finish line after 26.2 miles. Now there are five different options for runners to participate. A friends and family run, 5k, 10k and of course the half and full marathons. Having run the half marathon last year, this race is one of the flatter courses that can truly help set your next PR. I was born and raised in Omaha, which is why I wanted to accomplish such a big goal in my city. It is great to travel and race in other cities to explore new running worlds, but there is something that really gets the heart pumping as your feet hit the pavement each mile on your own turf and cross the finish line with your friends, family and community cheering for you. With a pasta dinner and nice workout long sleeve shirt included, it’s hard to say no. But did I mention you finish the race in TD Ameritrade, running the length of the stadium is your last challenge as you race towards the finish line.
