The Little Rock Marathon offers a training program to individuals participating in the 2015 race. Official training begins in mid-September with a "build-up" training phase beginning on Aug. 4. 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.
This year’s 2014 Marathon was a success with a 12.7 percent increase in race participation from 2013. More than 21,400 individuals participated in the various training programs and races according race officials.
Registration will be available online at littlerockmarathon.com through 11:59 p.m. CST Feb. 20, 2015. 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 20, 2015.
In the past, all races have sold out, due in part to the famously HUGE finisher’s medals and fun race themes. The 2015 theme is “treasure” and race officials anticipate the race will sell out before the end of the year.
