Runners who want to clean up after the run will be able to use the showers at Thayer Central High School. The school is located at 10th and Eads avenue in Hebron.
As all of the runs are taking place on public thoroughfares, which will not be closed. If you have family members or friends who want to cheer you on, they are welcome to do so anywhere along the route. However, please be advised that harvest is going on and there will be some harvest traffic. We would prefer that your cheering section park on North-South roads and not on the run route.
Also, October 22nd is the start of youth pheasant season, and Nebraska Game and Parks has requested that those watching the run not park in the Wildlife Management Areas along the route.
