My wife and I traveled to Nebraska from Cincinnati to run the race, visit Oregon Trail sites, and climb the highest point in Nebraska. We had a blast.
When the buses to take the full marathoners to the start were MIA, the race director calmly called in the community to ferry us in vans and SUVs. It worked fine and was a demonstration of the community support for the race. We sat at the pasta dinner with a couple from the community who do not run or volunteer for the race, but just wanted to come and enjoy food and support the charities.

The course is challenging, but interesting. I particularly liked the section on dirt roads behind the monument at miles 18-22. Age group awards go three deep and in a small race the odds of snagging one are much higher than average.

The race has left me with a wonderful impression of the entire state of Nebraska.
