HONORING A LOCAL LEGEND
The Heartland Marathon benefits the Lewy Body Dementia Association in honor of local running and marathon legend Gary Julin. Gary was stricken with Lewy Body Dementia prior to his death in 2015. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds to benefit all who are affected by this dreadful disease.
Gary was a prolific competitor and a regular on the Omaha road racing circuit for nearly three decades. He completed more than 1,000 road races with more than 100 overall wins and more than 800 age group victories. During that time, Gary finished more than 165 marathons with more than 115 completed in less than three hours.
