Growing up in Western Nebraska, I have created this route to let runners and riders experience the wide open spaces and genuinely friendly people of west and northern Nebraska, while at the same time staying to well maintained roads with minimal traffic. Traveling from the Wyoming border you will start moving through the farmlands of the North Platte River valley. Once you depart Alliance at mile 80, you will quickly enter into the vast and beautiful expanses of the Nebraska Sandhills. After making friends with the cowboys, cowgirls, horses and cattle of the Sandhills you will hit the 'half way point' at Valentine and the race check-in point. ?To the east of Valentine, you will parallel the lush river valley of the Niobrara River. At the city of Niobrara, this river will join the mighty Missouri and you will trek south of it for the next 100 miles until you dip your feet in it's waters in South Sioux City, Nebraska and reflect on how this race has transformed your view of Nebraska and yourself.
