Prairie to Prairie 2023: Run-Bike-Run
Join us on May 21, 2023 for a Run-Bike-Run fundraiser for the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch!
Prairie to Prairie is a non-timed/non-competitive race consisting of:
- a 5K run at Pioneers Park Nature Center on the trails
- a 15M bike ride from the Nature Center, through the park on hard surfaces and out of the park via the east entrance and along gravel roads to Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center
- a 5K run through the Spring Creek Prairie
You may participate as an individual or as a team of 2. At the conclusion of the race, there will be a celebration onsite at Spring Creek Prairie with food and drink available for purchase.
The race will begin at 8:30 AM. Sign up as an individual ($40) or as a two-person run-bike team ($50). Your registration includes:
- entrance fee for the race
- t-shirt for each participant
- swag bag!
- donation to the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch
Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch is a tallgrass prairie passage and trail that will build on our nationally recognized trail and greenway system and will link two of Lincoln and Lancaster County’s premier environmental resource and education centers. It will follow the Haines Branch of Salt Creek from the Pioneers Park Nature Center, to the Conestoga Lake State Recreation Area, extend down through the Village of Denton and on to the Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center. This legacy project began in 2017 and continues today. Your donation will go towards the continued expansion of the Corridor! Our hope is that future Run-Bike-Run events will include the Prairie Corridor Trail as the passageway for cyclists!
Prairie-to-Prairie is a joint effort between: Lincoln Parks Foundation, Lincoln Parks & Recreation Department, Pioneers Park Nature Center, and Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center.
