Good Life Halfsy – Where to Show Support and Street Closures

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird, Tuesday, encouraged residents to turn out in support the Good Life Halfsy half-marathon Sunday, November 3rd.

About 6,500 runners will participate in the race, which begins at 8:30 a.m. at Seacrest Field and ends at the Railyard. The route, list of cheer stations and more information are available at goodlifehalfsy.com.

“There are easier ways to see our beautiful community than running through 13.1 miles of it–but you wouldn’t have thousands of our enthusiastic residents cheering along the way,” Mayor Gaylor Baird said. “Whether you are wearing a race bib or ringing a cowbell, the Good Life Halfsy is a celebration everyone in Lincoln can enjoy.”

Police will control intersections along the race route, and the public is advised to plan ahead for traffic delays. The Antelope Valley trail will be closed from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from Randolph to Court streets. South-bound 70th Street will be closed from 8 to 11 a.m. from “O” Street to Pioneers Boulevard. Southbound 56th, 48th and 40th streets will be closed at Normal Boulevard from approximately 9 a.m. to noon.
