About the event

The Skyline Ranches Cross Country Run is a cross country run/walk on the beautiful, private horse trails of the Skyline Ranches neighborhood just south of Elkhorn NE. This run has had many changes over the years, but some things have stayed the same… including the original mission in 2012 to raise money and awareness for the Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA) – www.hetra.org and St. Augustine Kids program – www.sainta.net.

Since 2012 there have been 850 participants who have helped raise over $16,000 for the two organizations.


The 7th annual Skyline Ranches Cross Country Run is a G.O.A.Tz run!

Featuring individual 5k/10k,1/2 Marathon, and team 5k/10k, and 1/2 Marthon.

We Run So They Can RIDE!

Starting in 2018, runners can raise money and/or awareness for a HETRA participant. It is simple to help raise awareness or money. We will provide each runner with a link to a HETRA participants “DRIVE TO RIDE” campaign in early September, and while you train, we ask that you share your training success and the participants “DRIVE TO RIDE” page. By helping the HETRA participant raise money and/or awareness we are helping all the HETRA participants ride throughout the year.

The Course

Skyline Ranches trails are mainly grassy and run through both beautiful forested areas and magnificent horse ranches. There are very challenging hills and fast flats. The trail is wide enough to accommodate many runners at the same time and very well marked to ensure no one gets lost.
