It's not necessary to send in your race results...unless you want someone to celebrate with! Then, please do send your results to email@example.com. Virtual packets will be mailed beginning February 13.
Packet pick-up is available during the following days/times at the Downtown Activity Center, 215 SW A Street in Bentonville:
We need YOU as a Course Marshal! Course marshals must be 18+ (or have supervision of an adult). Course marshals are responsible for keeping vehicles off of the course to keep the runners safe. This may mean helping drivers re-route to their destination away from the course, or simply holding traffic until the course reopens if there's not an alternate route available. Safety vests are required and are available at the Downtown Activity Center if volunteer doesn't own one. If you're interested in volunteering, check out our signup!
The race begins at 7:30am. Please allow yourself enough time to park and get to the starting area by the Downtown Bentonville Square. There are a variety of free public parking lots in the Downtown Bentonville area that are easily accessible to the Downtown Bentonville Square.
Your race packet contains your shirt, but it also contains a couple of important articles for your race participation...your race bib with your race number that's been assigned to you and corresponding shoe chip. Your race number should be affixed to the front of your outermost layer with the safety pins provided. Please be sure your bib is visible when you race! Your shoe tag MUST be attached to your shoe laces with the provided wire ties for the most accurate timing information. DO NOT CARRY THE CHIP IN YOUR HAND OR YOUR POCKET.
Step 1: Thread the wire twist ties under the shoe laces.
Step 2: Thread the shoe tag onto the wire twist ties.
Step 3: Secure the shoe tag by twisting the wire twist ties firmly together.
Be sure to turn in your shoe tag in the finish line area following your race! The shoe tags are reusable and expensive to replace!
