2019 race event was canceled
The course for the Heartland Marathon will be unrecognizable to those who ran the inaugural event last year.
Organizers with the Omaha Running Club moved the starting line about 6 miles east and pushed back race day one month. That means cooler weather and a more scenic route, said race director and club president Tom Whitaker.
The race, now in October, starts on the riverfront in downtown Omaha. It takes runners past the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium and across the Veterans Memorial Bridge into Council Bluffs before returning to the finish line via the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. Marathon runners also will see Lake Manawa on their 26.2-mile course, but half marathoners won’t make that trek.
