The Cornhusker State Games, taking place July 6-30, is one of the largest amateur sports festivals in the nation with more than 11,000 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 part of the CSG Torch Run by safely running at least one mile in their area.
Following completion of their mile, runners are invited to submit a photo via email or social media. Participants who register and submit a photo will be eligible for random drawing prizes.
Make it YOUR mile
This is YOUR mile! Although participants are required to submit/tag their photo, we recommend all Torch Runners get creative and help us spread the Cornhusker State Games word through their own social media networks.
Find something small and safe to carry as your “torch” (no open flames). Make it fun or sentimental, i.e. the game ball from your best pitching performance, your grandfather’s watch or your Luke Skywalker action figure. If sharing a photo or the story of your “torch”, use #MyCSGTorch2023.
Registration is *FREE! All runners will receive the Cornhusker State Games Summer Fun Freebies. Runners will have the option to purchase a shirt for $10!
Register ONLINE HERE.
Summer Fun Freebies include vouchers for free admission to the Nebraskaland Days Rodeo, a Lincoln Saltdogs regular-season home game, an Omaha Storm Chasers game, the Lancaster County Super Fair, and the Nebraska State Fair.
*While it is free to participate, please consider a tax-deductible donation to offset expenses and help sustain the Nebraska Sports Council.
