Maria Bledsoe and her five children have made it a family tradition to participate in the Lincoln Marathon each year. 

Greg Boettger and his daughter Graycen Boettger, both of Omaha, ran 13.1 miles together Sunday. It was Graycen's first half marathon and the 14-year-old finished fifth in her age group.

Vanessa Urbach registred for the half and so did her cousin Krissy Cherko. 

The Greater Omaha Area Trail Runners (aka GOATz) even asked members to show up early enough to snap a group photo before the race.

It's clear that the Lincoln Marathon draws families together. But who are we kidding? The entire running community is one big happy family.
