2021 G.O.A.T.z Trail Runs
2021 Brings Even More Changes to GTR...
10th Annual G.O.A.T.z Trail Runs - Home of Omaha's 1st 50K
Race Date: Sunday, October 17, 2021
Location: Glenn Cunningham Lake, Omaha, NE
3 a.m. - 50M
8 a.m. - 50K, 21M, 10.5M
I’m extremely humbled by the acceptance of our runners over the last two years. I mean, the lake closed, forcing us to a new location in 2019. Then…COVID and a snow storm in 2020.
And 2021 is bringing us more changes.
Lake Cunningham is tentatively opening July 15, 2021. I have been in talks with the Lake Cunningham Development Trust (who now runs Lake Cunningham), and we have been promised a date.
What that means for us is seeing if the original trails on the lake side are salvageable. With that being said, 2021 might be back on the original side. But the original side will have changes–this is guaranteed. There are now 6.2 miles of beautiful cement trails around the lake–and some of that concrete lies on our original dirt course.
GOATz Trail Runs (GTR) will happen this year. It might be on the original side. It might be on the new north side. Either way, it promises to be amazing.
It’s our 10th anniversary, after all!
I personally guarantee an amazing race, regardless of which course we use. (Heck, I might even use both!).
With that being said, sign up for a surprise. The trails and you are what the GOATz are all about anyway, so we’ll have a party to celebrate a somewhat return to normalcy.
<3 Kim, Race Director.
