June 20th isn’t the final cut off date, but it IS the last date at which you can be guaranteed a shirt to wear while you’re doing the race (or in my case, walk).
SO SIGN UP.
Below is the latest I’ve seen regarding the leaderboard of what Big Ten schools have the most participants.
After five weeks of registration for the 2021 VIRTUAL BTN Big 10K, here is our current Leaderboard!— Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) June 15, 2021

I’m glad to see Nebraska is ahead of Northwestern, and Minnesota, but we’re BEHIND IOWA.
We can do better.
Mrs. CN will be doing her 10k as a University of Nebraska alum this year, which means she’s moved from evil to good. She’ll also count us as one of us instead of one of them damned Gopher supporters.
As I stated above, the deadline for signing up is June 20th. It’s not really a deadline, but the web site says to register by that date to make sure your packet arrives in mid-July before race week. I’m obviously early with this post of encouragement, but I am trying to inspire you to get off your butt now and start getting in shape so you can do a 5k or 10k when the time comes.
When race time comes we can all compare how we did, because that’s what good Americans do, compare themselves with each other! At least this time it’s in the name of health and your beloved University of Nebraska!
YOU CAN DO IT
I am signing up for a 10k and, honestly, it can be tough. I am a screwed up human being, but I KNOW that I have to take care of my body as best as I can if for no other reason than to keep up with the smoking hot Mrs. CN.
Mrs. CN and I plan on doing this again this summer and I want to encourage other Nebraskans to join with us. Race week is July 25th-31st.
