Torch Run


The Cornhusker State Games, taking place July 14-30, is one of the largest amateur sports festivals in the nation with more than 10,000 Nebraskans of all ages and abilities competing in 70+ sports.

The spirit of the Games is spread across Nebraska with a statewide Torch Run. Residents from all 93 Nebraska counties are invited to be a part of the CSG Torch Run by running at least one mile in their own area.


Runners must run at least one mile in the region and time-frame in which their county is listed and are responsible for their own safety.

In order to receive their Torch Run shirt, runners must register and submit a photo to or tag a photo on Facebook using #CSGTorch2023.


Registration is *FREE! Runners will receive a free t-shirt!

Runners will receive their shirt via mail after their region is complete.

Register online HERE.
*While it is free to participate, please consider a tax-deductible donation to offset expenses and help sustain the Nebraska Sports Council.

Make it YOUR mile

This is YOUR mile! Get creative!

• Use your mile to carry something sentimental, i.e. a prized or loved one’s possession.
• Dedicate your mile to someone.
• Wear your school colors.

Keep it safe, but have fun! And, please share your story with us by tagging a photo and description with #MyTorch2023.
