Road to Omaha Run presented by Northwestern Mutual
Take a baseball-themed running or walking tour of the hallowed grounds of the NCAA Men’s College World Series during the Road to Omaha Run presented by Northwestern Mutual. The route begins and ends near the Lewis and Clark Landing and includes views of the Missouri River, downtown Omaha, CWS Central, Gene Leahy Mall and Heartland of America Park. The run is highlighted by a lap around TD Ameritrade Park Omaha with all runners displayed on the CWS video board. Runners may also pose for photos coming out of the same inflatable tunnel the teams enter through during Opening Ceremonies -- complete with pyrotechnics! All proceeds from the 5-kilometer run/walk will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the Omaha Parks Foundation.
