Nebraska Football Road Race

Nebraska Football Road Race

Sunday, June 28, 2020

Presented by The Lincoln Track Club

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the 2020 Nebraska Football Road Race will be shifting to an entirely virtual run. If you have questions about the race, please contact Sammi Cowger ( 

Although we cannot run together in person, the Nebraska Football team invites you to join their efforts to support pediatric brain cancer research. There will be an exclusive race-day experience presented live for all race participants to view. 

What is a Virtual Run?
You will run your race distance on your own or with a friend (making sure to follow "social distancing" guidelines). Your run does not have to follow the standard race route and can be done anywhere in the world. The Lincoln Track Club has a Strava Group that we suggest all runners join, but it is not a requirement to participate in the Virtual Race. Tag your run with the hashtags #Huskers #NebraskaFootballRoadRace to share your experience with others.

Valid Run Dates?
The Nebraska Football Road Race will accept runs between June 21 and July 5.
