WHAT IS ENDURO?

Enduro racing combines many aspects of mountain bike disciplines- endurance of cross country, technical features of downhill, and requires adaptability to varying terrain. In a cross-country race, riders compete in a group for fastest overall time on a course with terrain most suitable for a hardtail or short travel bike. A downhill race is a solo run on a downhill only trail with extreme rock features and jumps. Enduro racing combines elements of both disciplines to offer a course that is both technically challenging but also requires pedaling endurance. The timing method is unique as well. Riders are timed primarily on the downhills that offer, diverse segments over several stages throughout the course.

Angel One is a flight team dedicated and specially trained to take care of the sickest children in Arkansas.

The Hero Half Marathon is a scenic, chip-timed, point-to-point race starting at Lokomotion Family Fun Park before jumping onto the trail system at Lake Fayetteville. Racers will be shuttled to the race start before winding their way through the green heart of this charming college town on extensive multi-use, paved trails that makeup part of Razorback Regional Greenway, a world-class trail system linking six communities. Racers will experience a safe, fun, well-marked, well-supported race. The race finishes on Dickson St. in historic downtown Fayetteville where participants will be greeted with a Finish Line Festival that includes music, food trucks, a beer garden, local vendors, sponsor booths, and activities for children. The race coincides with Fire Safety Awareness week and includes a 9/11 Memorial to commemorate the sacrifices made then and now by firefighters, law enforcement, and first responders. Proceeds support organizations that meet important community needs, celebrate an active lifestyle, and honor the heroes in our everyday lives.

Scattered about the rolling hills of the area, the course offers great views of the Ozarks throughout Benton and Washington county along with crossing over into surrounding states. The course also features an assortment of civil-war era buildings, barns, and houses from the late 1800’s. Expect average temperatures to be in the mid 50’s by race start and up into the mid 70’s by the midday peak. Gravel sections are well packed, smooth and fast with some wash board wash out portions. The course will be different this year. There will be a 6.5 mile lead out of town to the gravel. 100k and 100-mile courses will be marked, and cue sheets will be provided. We strongly suggest downloading the maps, we will have staff available to help you do it if needed.

What is The Halloween Half Marathon?
Just the most fun you can have at a half marathon and 5K! This Halloween themed half marathon and 5K will get you pumped for the holiday and give you a chance to try your most ghoulish moves out on the course.

Who?
You! Friends! Family! Mythical Creatures! (Actually no, scratch that. Please don’t bring Pegasus or any other creature for that matter…) You can totally dress like one if you like though. Wear those wings and horns with pride! If you like a challenge! If you like to laugh! If you like to have fun! Then this fun run is for you! There is a 5K and half marathon option, so this one is great for all fitness levels.

Why?
Better question would be “Why Not?” You and your family and friends deserve a day of fun. What better way to do that than dressing up in your favorite running costume, running or walking, and hanging out afterwards for lunch and music? Where else can you get exercise and be challenged, all while you having the time of your life?
