Cheer on 12,000+ runners or volunteer for at the Little Rock Marathon, which Runner’s World has called one of the 10 Great Marathons for First-Timers.
The “race for every pace” welcomes walkers with its generous eight-hour time limit, as bands, DJs and dancers perform along the route to keep spirits high. The community-driven race includes 2,000 volunteers, 60+ sponsors and tons of southern hospitality.
The weekend also features a half marathon, 10K, 5K and the Little Rockers kids marathon, open to 1,800 children who run just the final mile. Award categories include wheelchair, hand cycle, non-binary and physically challenged athletes.
