Team Loco Marathon and Half Marathon @ Conway Regional Health and Fitness Center.
Jan 26 @ 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
Team Loco Marathon and Half Marathon @ Conway Regional Health and Fitness Center. | Conway | Arkansas | United States

The Team Loco Marathon and Half Marathon was born six years ago over breakfast as some of the members of Team Loco licked our wounds in the lobby of a hotel room in Memphis, TN. The St. Jude Marathon had been iced out and several of us were depending on that race to qualify for either Marathon Maniac or Half Fanatic status. After some pancakes and probably too much coffee, the idea for the Team Loco races was born. Surely we, a dedicated group of runners could put on a race that met the qualifying standards for the Maniacs and Fanatics. After lots of hustling and more than a little hand wringing, the inaugural Team Loco Marathon and Half Marathon was held in January of 2014. Many Maniac, Fanatics and more importantly memories were made that day. What several of us thought might be a one off turned into an in demand race and last year the 4th Annual Team Loco races were held. This brings us to the point…and lets face it…me getting to the point is a big chore.

On January 26th, 2019 the Sixth Annual Team Loco Marathon and Half Marathon will be held. The race will once again be held on the Tucker Creek Trail in Conway, Arkansas. However, the start will move to the Conway Regional Health and Fitness Center.
