LITTLE ROCK, AR (News Release) - Little Rock Marathon race officials today announced that registration will open at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday (August 1) for its 2014 event to be held March 1-2, 2014.
Race Weekend events include the 12th Annual Little Rock Marathon, the Little Rock Half Marathon, the Little Rock 10K, the Little Rock 5K Fun Run/Walk, the Little Rockers Kids Marathon and the Little Rock Health & Fitness Expo.
Registration for the Little Rockers Kids Marathon will open September 1.
The Little Rock Marathon offers a training program to individuals participating in the 2014 race. Official training begins in mid-September with a "build-up" training phase beginning in August 6. The Little Rock Marathon Training Program, presented by Bill Torrey's Rock City Running and KARK Channel 4, is FREE of charge, but registration is required.
Last year's 2013 Marathon was a success with a 15.6% increase in race participation from 2012 and more than 19,000 individuals participating in the various training programs and races according race officials.
Registration will be available online (click here) through 11:59 p.m. on February 21, 2014. A mail in registration form is also available on the registration page of the website or by calling race headquarters at (501) 371-4639. Mail-in registration forms must be postmarked by February 21, 2014.
In the past, all races have sold out, due in part to our famously-HUGE finisher's medals and fun race themes. The 2014 theme is "Epic" and race officials anticipate the race will sell out before the end of the year.
