Below is the route/elevation for the July 18, 2013 Unofficial (as in run at your own risk this has nothing to do with the conference) DH 2013 Fun Run. The route begins and ends on the north side of the UNL Student Union (fountain area). From campus we will go a few blocks east to the Billy Wolff Trail. This is a paved bike/walk trail that runs southeast along Antelope Creek. We’ll run about 2.25 miles on Billy Wolff and then loop around the Lincoln Children’s Zoo briefly traveling the Rock Island trail before getting back on to Billy Wolff.
Please arrive at the start at 6:00AM; we will depart at exactly at 6:15AM. The run is 4.75 Miles (that’s 7.65 Kilometers). I’ll plan on setting a roughly ~9 minute mile pace making the run about 45 minutes. We should be back on campus at 7AM. Conference sessions begin at 8:30.
Morning temperatures in July are likely to be in mid 70s (that’s ~24 degrees centigrade) and it will be humid. A water bottle is recommended (and you’ll find one in your conference swag bag!).
If you are planning to run with us, it would be useful, though not required, if you would send me an email.
