Registration opens Friday, April 5, 2019 at 10 a.m. for the sixth annual Good Life Halfsy presented by Bulu Box.
The fall half-marathon is scheduled for Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. in Lincoln.
The Good Life Halfsy has sold out every year since its inception. Last year was the first year the Halfsy went national, attracting
runners from all 50 states. Race organizers, Pink Gorilla Events, expect another sell-out field of 6500 runners.
“We were proud to showcase Lincoln and our state to visitors from all 50 states last year. It was a special milestone and we can now call the Good Life Halfsy a national event,” said Jason Bakewell, race co-director.
While the race continues to gain national attention, it also remains a favorite for Nebraska runners. In 2018, the event included
participants from over 250 Nebraska communities. The large number of participants and an estimated 15,000 spectators combine to produce over a $2 million-dollar economic impact for businesses in Lincoln.
The Halfsy is more than simply a half-marathon. It’s a fun-filled weekend celebrating Nebraska, its people, landmarks, icons, and
culture. The course kicks off from Seacrest Field in east Lincoln on a point-to-point journey westward on iconic city streets and trails to the downtown Haymarket finish. Runners will take in some of Lincoln’s favorite landmarks and views including Holmes Lake,
Sunken Gardens, Antelope Valley, the State Capitol and downtown stadiums. Saving the best for last, runners cross the Lincoln
pedestrian bridge on their way to the Canopy Street finish line where they get to watch themselves finish on the Cube.
The race directors encourage participants to sign up early to take advantage of incentives offered during the first weekend of public registration. “We are excited to offer runners our most varied selection yet of free add-ons if they register early” said Ben Cohoon, co-race director. “Pick from two pom stocking hats, a limited-edition t-shirt, or running socks. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to runners who register fast to beat the sell-out.”
Registration starts at $79 and increases as race day approaches. Learn more about the event and register at www.goodlifehalfsy.com.
