Run the Heartland
The Missouri River continues to rise at Omaha and is expected to reach flood stage Tuesday afternoon from the runoff surge from recent South Dakota storms. The river is predicted to crest in Omaha on Thursday this week. This will result in portions of our course being flooded and impassable. The river level is expected to begin receding Friday, although at the projected river levels sections of the course will remain flooded for multiple days. Therefore, we are officially announcing today that we will utilize our loop backup course for the Heartland Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon and 10K.
We are developing detailed maps and intend to have them posted on Wednesday, September 18. Please be assured that the new course will be safe, accurate and certified and will provide a unique running experience.
