Heartland Marathon

Omaha's HEARTLAND MARATHON

Presented by runners. For runners.

Running is personal. 

It's about you. You setting a goal. You making it happen. You running your best event.

As Omaha's premier running organization, the Omaha Running Club is here for you. We work year-round to support our community and our runners; a tradition we have upheld for more than 50 years.

A lot has changed over the past five decades. Events have come and gone, but our Club, and our commitment to the Midwest stands. 

We believe race events should be about the runners - and we created the Heartland Marathon to do just that.

Join us Sept. 26, 2021, as we #RuntheHeartland!

IT'S PERSONAL. IT'S OMAHA'S HEARTLAND MARATHON.
