Race Day Parking
Please park at Gretna Middle School, 11705 S 216th St, just southwest of Gretna Elementary. Please approach the Middle School from the south by exiting Highway 6 at Schramm Road (by Runza) and following the curve to 216th Street and the Middle School.  This will help minimize traffic on South Street as the Mile Race participants line up and run at 8:00 am. Note that 216th Street at Schramm Road will close at 8:25 am, please arrive early!  It is a very short walk/warm-up run from Gretna Middle School north to Gretna Elementary School via the access road.

New for 2018:  the 10k course may include a railroad crossing on Schram Road. If it does, we will have volunteers stationed on both sides of the crossing.  BNSF does not have a set schedule on this segment, but have been alerted to our event.  Please obey the instructions of the race volunteers with regards to crossing if there is a train approaching or stopped.  No race time is worth your safety!  

Weather Policy
The weather can vary greatly in Nebraska in early April. If early morning thunderstorms should form during the race and lightning is spotted, we will delay the race 30 minutes, watching the radar during that time.  If lightning has cleared the area we will start the race.  If storms including lightning appear to be moving in the direction of the race we may postpone or cancel the race to ensure runner safety.  If it should develop during the race we will make every effort to bring runners in safely.
