The Cornhusker State Games Track & Field Meet will continue to be 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. Those interested in walking in the 2018 Games are encouraged to register for any of three walking events - CSG Walk (Outdoor Lincoln, July 28); Mallwalk (Indoor Lincoln, July 22); WalkOmaha (Outdoor Omaha, July 29) - at

The updated time format for 2018 has two sessions: Session 1 from approximately 7:30 a.m. to Noon, and Session 2 from approximately Noon to 5:15 p.m. Event times and details below.

NEW THIS YEAR -  FAMILY RELAY.    ANY AGE and ANY SEX.  The family relay is new and an exhibition event.  This relay only does not count in the event count.  Every family member must be a family member and be registered in the system for 1 event.  The event can be the Family relay only.  If you are already in events and registered, then you are eligible.  The Cornhusker State Games has had tremendous family participation, and this is a bonus for their support. Each member for the Family Relay only will receive a commemorative medal.   The top three teams will receive a gold, silver and bronze medal also.
