A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020 with people mostly confined to their homes, the trails became very popular since fitness centers and gymnasiums were closed. And the trails have continued to be used today for relaxation, exercise and stress relief. Children with parents are riding bicycles, mothers/fathers are pushing strollers, people are walking dogs, walkers, runners and bicyclists are using trails now more than ever. Trails continue to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The trails are utilized when runners use sections of it for the Lincoln Marathon/Half Marathon, the Lincoln Hafsy Marathon, and fundraising events for good causes in the community.

The manager of a locally owned running shoe store teaches running classes for people of all ability levels. She has taught these classes for several year, using Lincoln's trails to get people moving for a healthier lifestyle. She hosts special events on the trails with the Lincoln Track Club, teaches an annual marathon training class, and coaches Beginner's Luck class tailored for people wanting to start or get back into running. Staying active by running/walking on the trails, they lost weight, stay motivated and many go on to run half or full marathons. They would not be able to achieve this without utilizing the trails we have!

Nebraska Trails Foundation (NTF) is an important partner in the acquisition, development and promotion of the multi-use recreational trails across Nebraska. NTF participates in the purchase and acquisition of abandoned railway lines used for multi-use trails. The trails are used by the public for transportation, recreation and promotion of healthy lifestyles, all while preserving the environment.
