The nearly 3,500 runners for Sunday’s Good Life Halfsy filed into Lincoln Station Saturday afternoon for one last pre-race preparation. Runners received packets of information and could sign up to donate more money to People’s City Mission or Habitat for Humanity, which the race benefits.
The gun will sound at 9 a.m. at Seacrest Field near Lincoln East High School Sunday, and runners will travel through Lincoln and finish at the Railyard.
Organizers Ben Cohoon and Jason Bakewell expect a large turnout at the four cheering stations along the race route, at Holmes Lake, Neighbors Park, Union Plaza and Haymarket Park.
