NEW Course

Strava Link here

Race Start/Finish Location

New for 2019 is a shorter course using mainly the trails on the south side including the single track by the creek, the nursery and some of the south hill. Most of the course is single track with some gravel.

Please see Strava segment for details.

NEW Venue

The location of the new start/finish is on the south side of the creek that runs through the park. For those that have been racing long enough, it's where we used to stage the event. We'll have porta potties and water for the participants but there is no running water and shade is limited. Please come prepared.

NEW Directions

Race Parking Location

Parking for 2019 will be at the main Tranquility Soccer Complex at 4006 N 120th St. Accessing the course will be via the gravel service road beyond the north gate. No motor traffic, outside of official event staff, are permitted.


Route

The Course
These trails are primarily single track, though there are also some short sections of doubletrack connectors. A good mix of terrain can be found here – everything from tight, swervy switchbacks through pine trees, to wide open grassy climbs, to speed-building swooping descents. There is a good amount of climbing to be had here (by Omaha standards) and plenty of areas to pass.
