LINCOLN – A pair of northeast Nebraska communities will be one of six stops during the 2022 Nebraska Cornhusker State Games Torch Run.
According to a release from the Nebraska Sports Council, registration is now open for the CSG Torn Run which includes in-person routes along with the option to participate virtually.
Live routes will revolve around some of Nebraska’s favorite June events.
They include Heritage Day in Kearney on June 4; West Nebraska All-Star Game in Scottsbluff on June 11; NEBRASKAland DAYS Rodeo on June 16 in North Platte; Laugh-and-a-Half Marathon/Bloomfield Days on June 18 in Norfolk/Bloomfield; Tour de Nebraska on June 24 in Ord and CSG Night at Haymarket Park on June 30 in Lincoln.
Prospective in-person runners may choose from the six routes during registration. Miles will be scheduled according to Nebraska Department of Roads mile marker numbers, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Virtual runners, after registering, may run a minimum of one mile in a safe location in their home county, then post a selfie-photo and/or video from their mileage on the CSG Torch Run Facebook page within the two-week timeframe assigned to their county.
There is no charge to participate in the Cornhusker State Games Torch Run, either in-person or virtually, and all runners will receive a free shirt. Those interested in running can register and find more details, including the updated schedule and map, at cornhuskerstategames.com.
