The Claussen/Leahy Maverick Run is one of our marquee events and each year, we have been gratified by the increasing number of participants who run and walk to support Omaha Athletics.

Unfortunately, the recent global pandemic brought on by COVID-19 has made it necessary for us to cancel this year’s run so that we can do our part to ensure the health and safety of participants, spectators, staff and vendors in attendance.

Please join us at next year at the 2021 Claussen-Leahy Maverick Run on Saturday, April 24, 2021
