Runners must run at least one mile and may choose the general location during registration.

Schedulers will use runners’ addresses to make assignments as convenient as possible, unless otherwise directed. Miles will be scheduled according to Nebraska Department of Roads mile marker numbers, on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.
