Race Day For Runners

We hope you are as excited for race day as we are! The resources below will answer many of the questions you may have about race day.  Good Luck!

Race Guide

The race guide reigns supreme with all the essential information for the Good Life Halfsy and is a must read for all participants. Hard copies will be included in participant race packets.

Start Line

Seacrest Field | 7198 A St, Lincoln, NE 68510

Parking will be located in both the East and West lots at Seacrest Field. Arrive early and carpool where possible. No cars will be admitted to the parking lot after 8:15 am. Please enter the parking areas from A Street as the 70th street entrance will be closed. Runners arriving at the Start Line area may be dropped off at Seacrest Field or are welcome to leave vehicles for the entire day.

 

 

Bag Check

Need to drop a layer before the gun goes off?  We thought you might.  Gear Check will be conveniently located near the start line up until race time.  Your gear will be securely transported to the finish line where you can claim it by showing your race bib.

Finish Line

Railyard | 350 Canopy St, Lincoln, NE 68508

You’ll cross the epic finish line on Canopy Street and collect your medal, finish line refreshments bag, and have the option to have your finish line photo taken.

 

Shuttles

Post-Race Start Line Shuttle (Free)

Need a ride back to the start line? Shuttle buses depart one block from the finish line at the Amtrak Station (7th & Arena Drive) and will take Good Life Halfsy finishers back to Seacrest Field up until 1:30 PM.

Pre-Race Start Line Shuttle (Optional – $10)

New for 2022! We are excited to offer an optional pre-race start line shuttle for athletes that would like a ride to the start line from downtown Lincoln. With this shuttle option, you can leave a vehicle in a downtown parking garage (daily rates apply), get a shuttle ride to the start line, and then you’ll be close to your vehicle once you cross the finish line downtown. A $10 fee is needed to reserve your seat and seats are limited.

  • Pre-Race Start Line Shuttle Fee: $10 per athlete (spaces are limited)
  • Reservation Deadline: October 7, 2023
  • Pickup Location: Downtown Lincoln: 1240 Q Street; 6:45am – Arrive at the Pickup Location; 7:15 AM – Busses Depart
  • Dropoff Location: Start Line: Seacrest Field, 70th & A Street

Again, this shuttle is optional. Most participants will instead drive themselves to the start line on race morning, and use the free post-race return shuttle from the finish line area to the start line area.

Reserve your seat by “managing your add-ons to your existing Good Life Halfsy registration via your RunSignup profile.

How to add a Pre-Race Start Line Shuttle seat to your registration:

  1. Manage Registration
  2. Add-Ons
  3. Add the Pre-Race Start Line Shuttle ($10)
  4. Checkout

Pacers

Hop in with a pace group on race morning to reach your goal. Pacers will use the SmartPacing strategy, easing into the first few miles, running hills at consistent effort and slowing down through water stations.

The Lexus of Lincoln pace team plans to have pacers at the following times 1:30, 1:35, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 1:55, 2:00, 2:05, 2:10, 2:15, 2:20, 2:25, 2:30, 2:35, 2:40, 2:45 and 2:50.
