Arkansas Marathon Race Description

Welcome to the 52nd Annual 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 with the view 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!

My first marathon.

The overall marathon was fine. The course was tough, due to the several inclines and heat. The race support was great, although there should've been water stations at every mile, especially for the shorter races. It probably would've been better to have the county cops patrolling rather than the city police, which was limited at times. Overall it was a good experience
