Many of you have made the drive from Omaha to Lincoln. But have you ever thought about making that trip on foot?

Thousands of runners did that Saturday for the 4th annual Market to Market Relay.

Hundreds of teams made up of 6-to-8 people put their feet and lungs to the test, passing off their timing chips after completing their stage.

The course was changed to 78 miles this year because of the flooding.

The relay doesn't only link two major cities, it brings friends and family closer too.

There were eight 10/11 runners and they crossed the finish line in 11 hours and 40 minutes - beating their time last year by more than an hour and a half.
