47th Running of the Arkansas Marathon October 3, 2015
The 47th Running of the Arkansas Marathon is Dedicated to the Memory of Jacob Wells. He was a father, a husband, a runner who never lost sight of the fun of running. But, most of all, he was a friend.
Welcome to the Arkansas Marathon, Half-Marathon, Booneville 10K Run, & 5K Walk/Run. The Arkansas Marathon is one of the oldest and most unique marathons in the South. The race is not crowded, parking is easy and the scenery is great. In fact, you may find yourself sharing the road with deer, turkey, squirrels and an odd rabbit or two. The road course places you in the shadow of Mt. Magazine, the tallest mountain in 11 states, and along the boundary between the Ozark National Forest and the Ouachita National Forest.
Our route is unique as the start and finish lines are a couple of hundred feet apart, with parking in between. No riding a bus, no waiting in line, just a great day to run.
We invite you to come enjoy a great run in a unique Marathon. We are looking forward to seeing you in South Logan County!
