EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
Project Purple is now the official charity partner of the Lincoln Marathon for 2015! We are so excited to be paired with such an incredible event. Our participation in the 2014 Marathon was both fun and inspiring to say the least. Please join us in our efforts to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and funds for research, patient financial aid, and scholarships to undergraduate students. Make your miles matter in 2015 -- help us turn Lincoln purple!
About the Course
The Lincoln National Guard Marathon and Half-Marathon is run on a citywide course that starts and finishes on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Runners in both races share a common start and run a loop route past the Nebraska State Capitol, along Sheridan Boulevard, past Union College, along the Highway 2 bike path, past the Lincoln County-City Building and back to the Half-Marathon finish on the UNL Campus. Marathoners then follow an out-and-back route to Holmes Park passing the Sunken Gardens, Folsom Children’s Zoo and Antelope Park.
Both courses have been nationally certified by and according to the standards adopted by the USA Track & Field / Road Runners of America Committee on Certification.
