Nebraska State Fair Marathon Reviews

5.0 Stars from 1 Runners


By about 2015


Course is absolutely flat. Not enough port-o-pots on the course, some country roads, all paved, most of the race is within the city, so groups of people to cheer you on.

Race Tips

No pacers at this race, you're on your own unless you find a runner running at the same speed you run. I never count on that, I run my own race, small runner total, less than 1000. Only had 2 locations where the directions weren't clear on which way to go, but was corrected immediately when I started going the wrong way.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Book early for closest hotels, no shuttles, I walked about 8 blocks, race starts and finishes at the fair grounds. Parking at the fair grounds for the runners, I walked as my husband needed the car to come later. The walk is nice, lots of lights on the street, it also gave me a chance to warm up the legs, and time to calm down the nerves. Nice place to eat is called Pam's it reminds me of good ol' fashion down to earth food, like what you would get at home or at a truck stop, if you have ever eaten at a truck stop. Arrive al least 30-45 min. ahead of the race as there is only 1 building open with bathrooms and a place to stay inside to stay warm. Race starts at 6:30 AM Was my 1st time running this race, going back in 2016 to try and qualify for Boston.
