After 38 years of spectacular racing, The Omaha Marathon joined the HITS Running Festivals family in 2013. After a successful 2013 race, The Omaha Marathon is remaining on the HITS race schedule. HITS Running Festivals appeal to the competitive athlete running a marathon, as well as the newcomer doing the Friends & Family Mile.
Offering A distance for everyone!TM, HITS Running Festivals allows all participants a true “race environment,” regardless of distance or competitive level. From the mile to the marathon, you will experience a high-quality, well-executed event from the moment you register, throughout the race and then onto the finish line celebration and Festival.
