** Trail is firm with some greasy spots. Safe to ride but look for trees down in a few spots or for trail leaders removing them. Yes, rain is in the forecast but accumulation is very low so we think we're good to go. Keep your eye on the socials for more updates!

Race Distances - 1 lap = 4 miles
Swanson Park is a fast, flowing course of mostly single track with some really nice technical sections including log crossings, g-outs and bowls. It loops tightly within a relatively small area, so you’re never far from the start. Race loop is approximately 4 miles for all levels.
Swanson Park has a nice playground for the kiddies and lots of open field for them or your dog to run. There is a porta-potty on location and a large shaded shelter with tables. This is a great place to walk dog or hike the trails and watch the racers battle it out up close.
From Omaha; take Hwy 75 south from I-80 to the Cornhusker Rd. exit. Go west on Cornhusker to approximately 32nd St. Look for a brick sign with scrolling red letters for the Fire Department Training Center. Turn north and the park entrance is about 50 yards down the road on the left. You can park in the lot and on the entrance road up to the gate. If gate is open, we can park on the road.
