Giveaway: Four 5K registrations for the Hogeye Marathon

Hogeye MarathonIf you’re a beginning runner — or you plan to start training ASAP for a marathon — you’ll like this giveaway.

We’ve teamed up with the Hogeye Marathon and four mamas will each win a 5K registration (value of $25 each). This is the chance to show your stuff — or just to challenge yourself. You can do it! It’s not about being the first one to make it over the finish line, it’s about taking on the challenge.

ABOUT THE RUN: The Hogeye Marathon & Relays, Inc. is a non-profit organization. The event is put on by volunteers and has always had the mission to give back to the NWA community, while promoting healthy lifestyles through running.  In 1977, the first marathon started at the University of Arkansas and went to the small town of Hogeye where it turned around and came back, making the 26.2 miles.

The course has since been changed to be more runner-friendly and covers the most scenic parts of Fayetteville. The Hogeye has a great reputation and gives participants a pride which is unmatched in Arkansas and beyond.

The fun begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Fayetteville Square. The marathon course will allow participants to enjoy scenic Fayetteville with many miles being run on the Fayetteville Trails. Local law enforcement officers will direct traffic, offering better safety for all runners. However there will be some active traffic sections marked by cones and volunteers. Aid stations providing Gatorade and water will be at every .5-1.5 miles, with extra FUN stops between. Maps will be available at registration and on this website.

  • Date for Hogeye Marathon: March 29, 7:30 a.m.
  • Kids’ marathon: April 11, 2 p.m.
