The Omaha Jackrabbit course is around 100 km and will feature a significant amount of elevation gain. The route consists mostly of gravel roads, with several miles of dirt roads, or Minimum Maintenance Roads (MMR). There will be some connector segments on paved roads. In the event of extremely wet weather, we may provide an alternative route that reduces the amount of MMR.  No matter the weather conditions, there will be at least one MMR segment. The ride will occur despite rain or snow. 

The Omaha Jackrabbit starts at 8:00 a.m. Riders must attend a mandatory pre-race meeting at 7:45 a.m. Note that the Jackrabbit is not a timed race, but riders with GPS ride recorders may find a Strava segments, by which they may be able to compare their efforts against those of other riders.

 

The Number One rule of the Omaha Jackrabbit is to understand that you are on your own, and fully responsible for your safety and your property. You are 100 percent responsible for yourself. If you don’t agree to this, or aren't prepared to handle miles of rough, remote roads, in varying weather conditions, then please do not enter this event.

 

Riders should be prepared to ride in the dark. Depending on pace, you may be riding in the dark at the end of the day. Both rear and front lights are recommended. Helmets are required.

 

Please note that the fall harvest season will be underway. You will be sharing roads with farm equipment and farm-to-market trucks, some of which can be quite large. The course is not closed, and takes place on public roads. Be sure to watch out for this and other traffic on the course, and give them the room they need, stopping and pulling over when necessary. Giving a friendly wave is encouraged. Riders are expected to follow all traffic laws and ride safely at all times. 

 

Riders are expected to be self-supported, and should be prepared to ride at least 40 miles with no opportunity for resupply. The course will pass near a convenience store.

 

Littering is not allowed. Anyone caught dropping bottles, wrappers, papers, foils, used gel packaging, etc. will be disqualified and asked never to return. Fruit and vegetable rinds, tossed off the road way, will not be considered as litter. Keep Nebraska beautiful.

 

Above all, have fun and don’t take things too seriously. Keep your head up and look around at the beauty of the terrain while enjoying the company of your fellow riders. Let us know what you liked and what you didn't like. Keep supporting free racing and rides, volunteer in your local races, and start your own events, if you want to. The more, the better.
