After an unbelievably great turnout the first year, the Invest in Yourself 5k is back and expecting to be even bigger and better this year!
The run, sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway company Brooks, is held on the Sunday of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders’ weekend (May 4th this year). It starts at 8am and the course is in downtown Omaha, near the site of Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholders’ meeting at the CenturyLink Center.
Last year, the first for the race, more than 2,000 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders participated. They were greeted by Warren Buffett himself firing off the starting pistol. Participants were given Brooks technical t-shirts and finisher medals. The winners received crystal trophies from Borsheims.
Organizers say it was such a success, they are expecting more runners this year. And if you want to run, you’re in luck – the early-bird deadline is today! You can save yourself $10 by registering now. Otherwise, you can still register up until race day, it will just cost you a little more.
