Event Postponed due to COVID-19
Unfortunately, we have made the decision to postpone our Steps for STEM 5K until Saturday, 29 May 2021. It has been extremely difficult to make this decision, but we need to distance our on-site event from the Coronavirus as much as possible to help ensure everyone’s safety. It is our hope a run in May will not be hindered by constraints and the cloud of the Coronavirus, creating a more enjoyable experience for all participants.
For anyone who is currently registered, you have the option to…
1) Request your entrance fee be refunded, or
2) Stay the course and plan to participate in our run on 29 May 21 at Walnut Creek Park.
If you desire your entrance fee, please send a note to email@example.com
If anyone has questions, please send us a note (firstname.lastname@example.org.
We highly encourage you to tell family and friends about this worthwhile event. Not only will it be stimulating to experience Walnut Creek Park this time of the morning, but there are physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved from running or walking briskly. You’re investing in yourself while supporting a noteworthy cause.

Come run a personal best like your life depends on it, along the moonlit trails of Standing Bear Lake. See your breath hit the air as your pulse quickens and your heart pounds in fear of all things that go bump in the night!! Entry fee includes registration for The Bones Run, a fabulous t-shirt, refreshments at the finish and glow necklaces.
The Bones Run 5K is a night-time themed run hosted by the Omaha Running Club on the South Side of Standing Bear Lake (Fort Street Entrance). It is our goal to provide a safe, fun and possibly scary event for the community. The course will be an out and back “dark” course, with a water stop along the course. We do encourage headlights for the run, and creepy, scary costumes are encouraged. The minimum age for this run will be 18 years old. A night race and terrain are not suitable for minors, wheelchairs or pets. Packet Pickup and Late Registration will be on race day only from 5:30pm-6:30pm at Standing Bear Lake – South Side Entrance on 138th & Fort Street.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to have an after-party or awards ceremony this year. Awards will be available at Peak Performance starting Monday, November 2.
We will cap this event at 250 participants, so sign up today at www.omaharun.org. You won’t want to miss an evening … on the dark side …

Police Athletics is a free sports program for under served kids ages 5-18 in the metro area. We are raising money to start a Trail Running Club and Mountain Bike Racing Club in addition to other sports opportunities. Our Spooky Stampede is a fundraiser for equipment needed for those new activities. The funds raised will also help the improvement of Mandan and Mt. Vernon parks for mountain bike racing and trail running. The 5k run/walk includes beautiful Laritzen gardens and the 1/2 marathon explores the new areas of Mandan park we will improve.
