RACE DAY

Pacers

SmartPacing will once again provide pacers for both races. The strategy they will implement on the course is easing into the first few miles to allow for an adequate warm up and will run all hills at an even effort to conserve energy. The pacers will also go slower through the aid stations.

Pacers will be available for the following times:

Marathon:  3:15, 3:30, 3:40, 3:50, 4:00, 4:10, 4:20, 4:30, 4:40, 4:50, 5:00, 5:15, 5:30
Half-Marathon:  1:30, 1:35, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15, 2:20, 2:25, 2:30, 2:35, 2:40, 2:45, 2:50, 2:55, 3:00

Parking

There are several parking lots available on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.  Runners and spectators will not be allowed to park in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage or the Champions Club lot. You can park in City of Lincoln Parking Garages (first hour free) and at parking meters (free on Sundays).

Starting Line

Streets of Lincoln – Expected Runner Traffic

This table shows when we expect the first and last runner to come through each specific location on the course.

This information is to be used as tool for Spectators, as well as residents trying to plan their driving route through the city on race day.

As this is simply a tool based on past events, it is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate.

We also recommend looking at the tracking site to see the last time that a specific runner came through one of the “timing mat” locations.

Watching the Finish

Spectators should enter Memorial Stadium through Gates 1 and 2 to sit in the south stadium. You will see the runner’s on HuskerVision as they head up Stadium Drive before entering the stadium. Spectators are not allowed on the field.
