About This Activity

Valley, Nebraska is a hidden gem of small town charm in Western Douglas County.  Peacefully nestled between the Platte and Elkhorn rivers, just minutes west of Omaha. The Valley 7 Lakes Marathon was established to highlight the natural beauty of the community of Valley.  In the process, we have found claim and fame as the "Flattest Closed Road Marathon in the World."   Our total elevation gain of only 21 feet is enough to draw national interest. It is the seven deep freshwater lake developments that will make your tour of Valley and Western Douglas County a run to remember!  Our event management staff has worked closely with civic and residential communities to ensure a one of a kind marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay.  The City of Valley will open its arms to runners from all over the United States and the world, Saturday April 27, 2019.  We invite you to join us and run the race of your life!

Event details and schedule

The Valley 7 Lakes Marathon starts with a lap around the freshly coated DC West track. Following the course to S Mayne St. beginning your tour of the big charm of small downtown Valley, via Spruce St. Passing the historic Valley theatre as well as the beautiful VFW Veterans Memorial, before you cross the train tracks to head down Reichmouth Rd. Less than 2 miles into the race, you encounter your first of many lakes in the Valley area. After running a half loop around Valley shores, runners head down State St to run past the scenic Pines Country Club. After jumping back onto Reichmouth Rd to 300 St. Runners will enter one of the oldest residential lakes in Valley. Ginger Cove is well known for the great skiing as well as the"skinny river." Runners will then exit the lake and run down Ginger Woods Rd to enter the secluded Ginger Woods lake, tucked away from society in the woods next to the Platte river. After exiting Ginger Woods, runners will find themselves in Valley's largest and most recent gem, Blue Water. Runners will run through the north side of the lake, closest to Valmont Industries and the Valley National Weather Station. Exiting the lake, runners will run down N 288 St, running past soon-to-be FlatWater Lake. Then turning on to W Meigs St,  runners will run through the Nursing Home District of Valley, showing the residents what the running community is about! Which will put the runners on the intersection of S Center and 270 St. Runners will then make their way towards the gated community of Camp Sokol on the Platter River. Following that excursion, Seven Lakers will then make their way towards the young residents of Mallard Landing, absorbing the sand bottom lake views. After the quick lap around Mallard, runners will journey back down E Meigs St. to find themselves throwing shade amongst the tall cottonwoods of Timber Shores Lake. Beginning the last leg of the race, participants will head down S West St. eyeing the soaring Valley water tower, running past the helping hands of the Valley Fire Department. For a second and last time, runners will turn the corner onto historical Spruce St and downtown Valley. Participants will mirror an Olympic Finish at the Douglas County West High School track. Where finishers will end with one lap around the track, finishing the race of their lives in front of the grandstand and many young running enthusiasts; as well as the entire Valley and Waterloo communities and small businesses!
