2018 Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon


Race day dawned with the constant optimism that every race day brings.  No rain, check.  Low wind, check.  Cloud cover, nope.  Cool temps, not really.  But that is how we roll in Lincoln.  Almost 10,000 people lined up on 14th street in the north section of UNL' campus to see off on a tour of the city.  Lots of blue in the front corral prior to the gun going off.

Once again, LRC Racing was loaded on the awards results (don't think I will ever get tired of typing that).  Even those that didn't finish top 10 or age group competed really well.  The team had a strong presence in the half marathon with a few awesome/crazy guys continuing out around Holmes Lake in the full marathon.

Like any race the range of emotions and race performances ran the gamut from PRs to disappointed.  But that is one of the things that keeps us coming back to the start line each time.  The possibility of having "that" day.

In what has become one of our biggest races the Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon is where we show our city our talents.
