Summer is coming to an end and fall is right around the corner.

Below I’ve put together a list of some upcoming races all the way through the end of October. Check them out, see what you think, and if you’re interested in any of them and wanting more information please click the following link: http://www.runningintheusa.com/race/ListByCityRadius.aspx?Rank=All&State=NE&City=Omaha

Saturday, September 21st – Storm The Fort 5K
Summary: This is an event to support our local veterans, and a chance to pass through history as you meet the challenge of running through the gates of the Fort Atkinson State historical park. Show your support for our troops with your best costumes and T-shirts. Face paint, fatigues, camo, anything that shows your military spirit. Prizes will be given for best costumes!

Saturday, September 28th - Tap ‘N’ Run Omaha
Summary: This event combines a ridiculous running race - a 4k with 3 beer chug stations* along the race course, a full beer at the Finish Line, crazy costumes, great times with friends, and overall ridiculousness. (*chug stations = 5 oz. of beer per cup)

In addition to being a part of an awesome and unique racing experience, all participants will receive a sweet Finisher's medal (that doubles as a bottle opener...no, really), the equivalent of over two beers, a Tap 'N' Run t-shirt to commemorate your amazing accomplishment and entry into the uber-frivolous Extracurricular Awards Ceremony.
Saturday, October 5th – Running Dead 5K – Dash and Bash
Summary: Get ready to run for your life in this zombie infested 5k! The Running Dead 5k is taking over Westfair Fairgrounds in a unique obstacle course style 5k event you won’t want to miss.

Before the race, each registered racer will be given a flag belt with 3 flags attached. Throughout the course of the race, racers will encounter zombies (some may be wondering alone, while others may be “hunting in a pack”) wanting to take your flags.

If you lose all your flags before you reach the finish line, you will be considered a “Zombie” when you cross the finish line and will not be eligible for prizes.

Sunday, October 6th – Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
