2021 Chiller Challenge & ORC Annual Meeting


Due to the forecast for more winter weather tomorrow morning with wind chills between -10 degrees F and -20 degrees F, we have decided to change the Chiller Challenge into an untimed fun run. We regret this decision, but due to the cold conditions there is a risk that the timing equipment necessary to maintain social distancing as provided in our COVID-19 race protocol (so we cannot just switch to pull tag timing) would not work and there would be no results. In addition, the wind chills are forecast to be very near the danger zone for frostbite. We understand this will create disappointment for some of our participants, but the safety of runners and volunteers is our primary concern. The Annual Meeting will proceed and box lunches for participants will be available. Mask wearing while entering the Papillion Landing and appropriate spacing while inside the building will be required. Those planning to participate in the fun run are to prepare, evaluate and only participate if they feel safe to do so.
The revised schedule will be as follows:
10:30 Doors Open
10:30-12:30 Voting for directors and officers
11:30 Fun Run
12:15 Lunch
12:45 Hall of Fame Inductees Announced
1:00 Annual Meeting and Election Results
1:20 2021 Club Races and Events

The Chiller Challenge & Annual Meeting is a great way to kick off your running year. Although this year may be a little different than in the past as we all deal with COVID-19. Under current directives and protective measures we can safely host the races and election of the Omaha Running Club Directors and Officers but if directives or conditions change we will adjust accordingly. We are continuing to monitor conditions and are working with the facility to determine if we can host the chili dinner, awards and meeting program.
We hope to have a clear picture of this by late January.

• We can host the races (we are using electronic timing to allow all participants to spread out at the start)
1k Kids’ Run
