Beyond the Halfsy weekend activities, we invite you to explore Lincoln and see why this Nebraska’s capital city is one of the nation’s best kept secrets. Whether you are a Nebraska native or out-of-state visitor, there’s always something for everyone.
We’ve lined up some comfortable race weekend digs for you. Book early to reserve your room.
This is a running weekend, but there’s plenty of time to enjoy Lincoln’s nightlife, food scene, local breweries and friendly people. We look forward to seeing you!
Tour the State Capitol: The capitol building is the perfect place to begin your tour of Lincoln. The interior of this must-see-jewel tells Nebraska’s history through carvings, mosaics, paintings, sculpture, inscriptions and inlaid wood. capitol.org
Go for a Pre or Post Race Run in a Lincoln Park: With over 120 miles of trail and more parks per capita than any other U.S. city, it shouldn’t be hard to find a great place to sneak in a few extra miles before or after the Halfsy. Plan your own run at lincoln.ne.gov/city/parks
