Our State Fair Marathon was cancelled due to COVID-19, so #RunRailside was organized to bring a different race in a different setting for those who were all set to run at the Nebraska State Fair. We have precautions in place approved by our local health district to ensure everyone’s safety from the virus. This is a major fundraiser for the Grand Island YMCA. We hope to see you on August 29.
