Event Details

It’s our 16th Year! It will be amazing just like you, our supporters!

Wear Yellow Nebraska will be hosting the 16th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Run & Walk on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum, Ashland, Nebraska.

We try to keep the cost of the event simple. From the opening of registration through March 31st, it’s only $35…that’s no April Fools! In the month of April, the price goes up $5 to $40. And On May 1st we go up $5 more to $45. You can register online until midnight on Sunday, May 5th. After that date you can register at any of the packet pick up events. So there’s some incentive to register early…like two Starbuck’s worth (in case it’s chilly on the day of the event!).

Your participation is making a difference. 100% of our proceeds support Wear Yellow Nebraska’s cancer fighting and cancer patient assistance programs. This event specifically supports the Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program.


The Run & Walk
We don’t want the cyclists to have all the fun! No bike? No problem! Lace up your walking/jogging/running shoes to help fellow Nebraskans in the fight against cancer. The Run & Walk will start at the SAC museum hangar and follow an approximate 3.6 mile course through the wide open spaces of Mahoney State Park. While the majority of the route is paved, there is a short section between the SAC museum and Mahoney State Park that is grassy/gravel. A Power Stop will be included at the half-way point. New this year, we will have timing services provided by Be About. No Frills Timing Services. Fun prizes will be awarded for our top male and female finishers. A Power stop will be included at the half way point.

The event ends at 2:00PM. Courses and on course support, Expo Area, Power Stops and the Pancake Man will be closed at this time.

Online Registration will open on January 21st, 2019.We will have a number of registration events at different locations around Omaha and Lincoln leading up to the event and open through the day of the event. Those who register AFTER May 1st are not guaranteed an event t-shirt. Additional quantities will be ordered, but sizes will vary.

You can also register in person at packet pickup.

Packet Pick Up
We have four packet pick up dates as well as picking it up the day of. We encourage you to pick your packet up early, as it makes for an even earlier morning on the day of the event. You can pick up your packet from 5:00-7:00 PM on:

– May 7 Packet Pick Up @ The Bike Rack Lincoln
– May 8 Packet Pick Up @ Trek Store
– May 9 Packet Pick Up @ The Bike Way
– May 10 Packet Pick Up @ The Bike Rack Omaha

We encourage you to pick up your packet at one of these times. This allows you to have more time to get yourself ready the morning of the ride. If you are unable to make it to one of these dates, you can pick up your packet the morning of the ride. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your roll out time. For safety of all participants, helmets must be worn at all times and no motorized bikes will be allowed on the routes.

This is a rain or shine event and no refunds will be given.

We have limited volunteer spots available and spots are filled at the discretion of the Wear Yellow Nebraska Board of Directors.
