The Course

Lewis and Clark Monument trails (known locally as L&C) crisscross along a bluff on the edge of Loess Hills. Hills being the dominant feature, this trail system will test lungs and legs. Either you’ll be going up or going down. The start will be at the bottom of Monument Road with racers doing looped laps that will keep them in the trees.

Race loop is approximately 4.5 miles.

The Venue:

Lewis & Clark Monument extends to the edge of a bluff where you can see the Missouri River just as the famed explorers did so long ago. Omaha’s skyline can also be seen in full view. Due to construction during summer of 2017 the bathrooms are closed and running water is not available. There will be portable toilets at the venue.

Parking Restrictions:

Because this is a public attraction, parking at the monument is prohibited except for race organizers. Racers can park on the road on the north side of the main entrance. Please do not park in any of the private driveways.
