17TH ANNUAL WEAR YELLOW RIDE, FUN RUN & WALK
Wear Yellow Nebraska will be hosting the 17th Annual Wear Yellow Ride, Fun Run & Walk on Saturday, May 9, 2020 at the Strategic Air & Space Museum, Ashland, Nebraska.
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1871336436473906/
Your participation is making a difference. 100% of our proceeds support Wear Yellow Nebraska’s cancer fighting and cancer patient assistance programs. This event specifically supports the Wear Yellow Cab Ride Program and the Wear Yellow Grant Program.

We try to keep the cost of the event simple. From the opening of registration through March 31st, it’s only $35…that’s no April Fools! In the month of April, the price goes up $5 to $40. And On May 1st we go up $5 more to $45. You can register online until midnight on Sunday, May 6th. After that date you can register at any of the packet pick up events. So there’s some incentive to register early…like two Starbuck’s worth (in case it’s chilly on the day of the event!).
From a short cruise down the highway to a scenic loop over hills and countryside, you can experience the very best of springtime in rural Nebraska.
– For those craving roads, we offer 25, 35, 45, and 60 mile options.
– For those craving less formal roads, we’re excited to offer a new 27 mile beginners gravel option, and
a 57 mile experienced gravel riders route.
– For those on two legs, we invite you to participate in the approximate 5K Fun Run & Walk.

The Adventure 5k Fun Run & Walk
With the success of the fun run and walk, we’re excited to host our non-cycling friends again. Those who come out to the Wear Yellow Ride to support their cyclists and enjoy the event can once again lace up their walking/jogging/running shoes to help their fellow Nebraskans in the fight against cancer. The Fun Run & Walk will follow an approximate 3.6 mile course from the SAC Museum through the wide open spaces of Mahoney State Park. For those who want a little competition, the event will be (non-chip) timed. A Power stop will be included at the half way point.
