Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth

Virtual Event

Sat 2nd March 2024

4 races

Organiser's Description

What is the Heat the Streets Run Walk for Warmth?
Heat the Streets Run Walk for Warmth offers participants the opportunity to register for a timed 5K run, untimed run/walk, or - new this year! - a timed 10K run. 
Why do we do it?
Since 2007, Metropolitan Utilities District and Omaha Public Power District have teamed up to host this annual event, with proceeds benefiting local utility assistance programs to help friends, family and neighbors in our communities pay their utility bills. The event is hosted in the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes. However, utility assistance is a year-round need.
Funds raised are administered by Dollar Energy Fund, Inc., a registered 501(c)(3), and then split between M.U.D.’s Home Fund and OPPD’s Energy Assistance Program to provide assistance to our customers living in Burt, Cass, Colfax, Dodge, Douglas, Johnson, Nemaha, Otoe, Pawnee, Richardson, Sarpy, Saunders and Washington counties. All money raised is distributed through this local network.
Dollar Energy Funds mission is to improve the quality of life for households experiencing hardships by providing utility assistance and other services that lead to self-sufficiency.
What are the details?
Participants will gather Saturday, March 2 at Zone 6 in Aksarben Village to run, walk and raise awareness for those in need of assistance in our community. The timed events will begin at 9 a.m. and the untimed event will start at 9:05 a.m. Vendors will be set up on-site and everyone is encouraged to visit Inner Rail and Aksarben Village businesses before and after the event.
Awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female runners in each of the following age divisions for the timed 5K and 10K events: 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70.
For those signing up for the virtual option, we encourage you to complete your registered distance on March 2 in your neighborhood, on local trails or from your home or gym treadmill! (No awards given to virtual participants.)
Registrations are non-refundable. Strollers are welcome. Pets and service dogs are allowed and owners must adhere to city leash ordinances.
