About us

This event would not be possible without the support of our men and women in blue. Thanks, Omaha Police Department!


Welcome to The Indie, a 10K/5K road race hosted by the Benson Neighborhood Association (BNA) as part of Benson Days.

In 2014, Omaha by Design and the Benson-Ames Alliance created and hosted the first Indie to showcase this corner of Omaha’s creativity, affordability (buy a home, see a show, open a business), history and hidden treasures, including two of the city’s most beautiful parks – Benson and Fontenelle.

The BNA took over hosting the race in 2016. Benson Days 2019 is set for July 27-28, and the fifth running of The Indie will take place Sunday, July 28. There will be cake to celebrate our 5th birthday! Got questions? Contact us as 402.681.1901 or info@theindieomaha.org.
