    The 2019 Heartland Half marathon was a little different than other years considering it was cancelled within the first 3 miles due to extreme weather conditions. I have raced dozens of races over the years and never experienced this type of situation especially with the flooding and storm that happened. It was pretty insane but the race management handled it so well. They tried their best in a crazy situation. The 5k that I did get to run of the course was fabulous despite the downpour. The run club putting it on was excellent and so kind! We stayed in a hotel right near the start and people could not have been nicer. Omaha is such a fun hidden gem of a town and we made an entire weekend out of it. Easy access from the airport via a tram and plenty to do! Definitely check this one off the list. It is a smaller race with all the good aspects!

    I really enjoyed this race. There were not a lot of 10K runners so no need to weave and dodge other runners on the course. The sun was coming up just as we crossed the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian bridge – very pretty. Weather was absolutely perfect. Race was well organized, friendly volunteers and the medal was nice. Thumbs up – I would do this one again if I’m in Omaha at the right time.

    It’s a good race. Very well organized. Volunteers, Cyclists, and Staff do care about their runners. I was very impressed.
    First 4 miles are mostly uphill. After you reach mile 2 it gets harder until mile 5.
    After you are done in Nebraska. You go to Iowa. Very flat (mile 5-mile 12) mile 12 gets you back to Nebraska on the pedestrian bridge and you can see the finish line up top the bridge.
    It wasn’t easy when it got to mile 9 because it was severely hot, yes in September.
    But the medal when you finish and when you know you finished is a good feeling because it’s party time to celebrate the wonderful success.
    Hosted by Omaha Running Club. A well organized group.
