The Good Life Halfsy is good and sold out.
After nearly doubling the amount of registration spots from its first year’s field of 3,500 runners, there will be 6,000 people traversing 13.1 miles of Lincoln streets and trails on Nov. 1.
Race organizer Jason Bakewell said racers from 33 states have signed up for the second Halfsy, and there will be 250 Nebraska cities, towns and villages represented in the field.
“The race sold out so fast in 2014, we really didn’t have time to promote the race to out of state runners,” Bakewell said in a news release. “It has been nice this year to have more time to attract runners from across the country as well as more Nebraska runners from outside the Omaha and Lincoln metro areas.”
There remains a way to register for the race, with proceeds from the final option going to charity. If a runner commits to raising $500 for People’s City Mission or Lincoln/Lancaster County Habitat for Humanity, there are a limited number of bibs remaining for racers who want in.
