UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO THE CONTINUING UNCERTAINTY PRESENTED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE WILL NOT SPONSOR A RUN THE MAGNET SERIES FOR 2021. HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE ABLE TO BRING BACK THE SERIES NEXT YEAR.
Looking for a fun way to stay motivated throughout race season and experience some of Omaha’s finest racing events? Omaha Running Club’s Annual Run the Magnet is the perfect solution.
Each year, the Omaha Running Club challenges members to “Run the Magnet,” a list of some of the best Metro running events. Members accumulate points by participating in the select running events for a chance of scoring a prize.
Pick up your magnet at ORC events and Peak Performance while supplies last.
How to Participate
Run the Magnet is a point accumulation system. Your goal is to earn a minimum of 20 points throughout the year, 10 of which must be from ORC events. ORC events = 2 points, Non-ORC events = 1 point
- Any Distance except kids' runs qualifies
- Verification and race completion will be monitored by the ORC
- Once you accumulate 20 or more points, submit the Run the Magnet Form 2020 listed below to: Omaha Running Club, PO BOX 34602, Omaha, NE 68134-0602, or via email. Forms are due by Dec. 31, 2020.
Prize: Members who “Run the Magnet” will receive an award at the 2021 Chiller Challenge. Participants completing all magnet events also will receive a $25 ORC merchandise certificate.
