The Cornhusker State Games Track & Field Meet will continue to be a one-day format. Past CSG meets ran from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The meet is usually hot, and recruiting volunteers for three sessions is very difficult. Those interested in walking in the 2018 Games are encouraged to register for any of three walking events - CSG Walk (Outdoor Lincoln, July 28); Mallwalk (Indoor Lincoln, July 22); WalkOmaha (Outdoor Omaha, July 29) - at

The updated time format for 2018 has two sessions: Session 1 from approximately 7:30 a.m. to Noon, and Session 2 from approximately Noon to 5:15 p.m. Event times and details below.

NEW THIS YEAR:  THE MORRISON FAMILY AWARD.  In February of 2018, long-time Cornhusker State Games Track and Field Director Steve Morrison passed away.  He was instrumental in building the meet to what it is today with a strong emphasis on family involvement.  Before his passing, he had a vision to add a Family Relay Race (4x100) to the event list for 2018.  The Family Relay Race can include any age and any gender.  It is an exhibition event.  This relay does not count toward each athlete’s maximum event count.  Every relay member must be a family member and be registered in the system for at least one event.  The event can be the Family Relay Race only.  All registered athletes are eligible.  All participants in the Family Relay Race will receive a commemorative medal and the top three teams will receive a gold, silver and bronze medal.  In addition, the overall fastest relay team will win the first annual MORRISON FAMILY AWARD.
