The Good Life Halfsy in Lincoln is going on as planned this November.
But runners should be quick to snag a spot when registration opens Friday at 10 a.m. This year’s cap has been lowered to allow for social distancing and other health measures because of COVID-19.
This year’s 13.1-mile race, set for Nov. 1, is capped at 3,500 runners, down from last year’s field of 6,500.
Should organizers be unable to host the race in-person due to the pandemic, runners can transfer to a virtual race for free or defer their registration to the race in 2021.
“We want Nebraska runners to know that safety of everyone involved is our top priority,” race co-director Jason Bakewell said in a statement.
Runners will start at Seacrest Field, near 70th and A Streets, and head west to the Haymarket finish line. The course takes them past Lincoln landmarks, including Holmes Lake, Sunken Gardens, Antelope Valley, State Capitol and downtown stadiums.
Registration starts at $75 and increases as race day approaches.
