Little Rock Marathon
On March 3, 2013 the Little Rock Marathon will take place in Little Rock Arkansas. The sponsors of the event are the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, KARK CHANNEL 4 and Baptist Health. The community of Little Rock is hoping that the economic impact from the event will be the same or more than it was last year.
In 2012 the community made $4.58 million from the event and more than 2,400 hotel rooms were filled. Registration for the marathon is now open and there is also a new registration transfer policy and the registration cap has been increased to 2,750 participants in the marathon, 4,850 in the half marathon and 1,300 in the 10K. The registration has also been increased in the 5K fun run/walk to 1,400 and 1,900 for the little rockers. The registration fees for the events at the marathon range from $25.00 to $110.00.
For those interested the Little Rock Marathon is offering a free training program. There are two different programs, Part A and Part B. Training for Part A began on August 6, 2012 for Marathon Build Up and on August 20, 2012 for Half Marathon Build Up. Part B starts on September 17, 2012 for Official Marathon Training and on October 22, 2012 for Half Marathon Schedule.
Participating in any of the Little Rock Marathon events is a great way to exercise. It is also a great idea to utilize the training that the sponsors of the event are offering; this will help the participants to be ready for their even of choice. Another reason to participate in this marathon is that it will help the community financially.
