Erin 's thoughts:

The Omahalf was a brand new race this year, billed as a simple race with few frills, but a great course at a low price. For $35, we received half marathon race entry, a super soft tee, and a great medal! While the course wasn't very scenic, it was nice and flat, which I always appreciate when trying to race! Being that it was on a bike trail, support on the course was sparse, but since it was out and back, runners were cheering each other on. The finish area had a playground, which was perfect for families waiting for their loved ones to finish. The PR bell was my FAVORITE and I'm so glad I was able to ring it!

I would recommend this race, especially at this great price, but I had two things I'd like to see changed. First, the race did not start until 10am. I much prefer an earlier start time and many suffered because of the heat because of the late start. Secondly, the food at the finish left much to be desired. I understand that this was all about simplicity, but after running a half marathon, I really needed something more!

The race directors did a great job on filling a gap in the Omaha area for a spring marathon and the low price made it accessible to lots of people! I look forward to seeing what they do next!
