Description

The Cornhusker State Games is one of the largest amateur sports festivals in the nation. On July 20–29, more than 11,000 Nebraskans of all ages and abilities will compete in more than 60 sports, showcasing their talents and encouraging others to adopt healthy, active lifestyles.

The spirit of the Games will be spread statewide by the Torch Run, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of runners and volunteers. Patterned after the Olympic Torch Run, the relay focuses the attention of the public on the Cornhusker State Games as it crosses the state.


Rules

Runners must run at least one mile and may choose the general location during registration. Schedulers will use runners’ addresses to make assignments as convenient as possible, unless otherwise directed. Miles will be scheduled according to Nebraska Department of Roads mile marker numbers, on a first-come, first-served basis.

"The Torch Run exemplifies many things about Nebraskans: Our work ethic, our individual will to succeed and our desire for self-improvement and physical fitness. You may choose to run for vigorous exercise or a casual jog. But best of all, you can choose to run a mile just for the memories."
