the-indie-finish-lineWelcome to The Indie, a Benson Neighborhood Association production.

When Omaha by Design and the Benson-Ames Alliance created and hosted the first Indie in 2014, we thought it was a great idea. The race is an opportunity for others to see what we’ve known all along – our corner of Omaha is creative, affordable (buy a home, see a show, open a business) and full of history and hidden treasures, including two of the city’s most beautiful parks – Benson and Fontenelle.

So when those two groups were looking for a new group to host the race in 2016, we at the Benson Neighborhood Association said hey, sounds like fun! We even thought of a way to make it better – schedule the race as part of the annual Benson Days celebration held each summer. And here we are.

Benson Days 2016 is set for July 30-31, and the third running of The Indie will take place Sunday, July 31. Got questions? Call us at 402.681.1901 or email us at

See you July 31 – get ready to scale the Benson alps.
