UPDATES FOR 2017:
The Cornhusker State Games Track & Field Meet will continue a one-day format. Past CSG meets ran from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The meet is usually hot, and recruiting volunteers for three sessions is very difficult. So, to enjoy the meet more and make it more entertaining for participants and spectators, event directors have eliminated the Race Walk, Intermediate Hurdles, 4x400 Meter Relay, and 100 Meter Dash preliminaries. These events had very minimal participation and required three hours of meet time, and the Race Walk lacked certified officials. Those interested in walking in the 2016 Games are encouraged to register for any of three walking events: CSG Walk (Outdoor Lincoln, July 29), Mallwalk (Indoor Lincoln, July 23), WalkOmaha (Outdoor Omaha, July 30).
The updated time format for 2017 has two sessions: Session 1 from approximately 7:30 a.m. to Noon, and Session 2 from approximately Noon to 5:15 p.m.
