Event Details

The Boxer 500 is a 5K run/walk, 1M walk and kid’s event to raise awareness and for colorectal cancer. Participants are encouraged to draw attention to their bottoms and colorectal cancer by participating in their boxer underwear. Form a team and wear matching boxers! The event is all-ages, so we do ask that you dress appropriately. Boxers are completely optional!

Participants are allowed to run for fun or for competition!  The 5K route is certified and is the Road Runners Club of America State 5K Championship for Nebraska.  Strollers are welcome on the route, but we ask that they line up behind the runners. Sorry no pets.
