Event Information
The Bellwood Daze River Run is held each year during the Bellwood Daze celebration. The proceeds from the 2018 event will be used for repairs and upgrades to the bleachers at the Bellwood ball fields.
  • The 6-mile and 2-mile races are held on a mostly flat, out-and-back course consisting of pavement and gravel going north of town towards the Platte River. The turnaround for the 6-mile is where Clear Creek meets the Platte River.
  • The kids half-mile race is held entirely on paved streets in Bellwood.
This year we are a part of the Nebraska 150 Challenge - an effort to get Nebraskans to complete 150 miles or more of physical activity throughout the year. A complete list of events is available on the Nebraska 150 Challenge events page.
