RussVegas Half Marathon is more than just a PR fast course covering 13.1 miles in Russellville, AR, it’s an opportunity to help those we love by supporting local charities throughout the Arkansas River Valley. It is a showcase as participants start and finish through the streets of Historic Downtown. It is an atmosphere with “Spirit Stations” throughout the course cheering and playing music. It is a community where more than 300 volunteers and local business’s pull out the red carpet for participants and family. Finally, it is a festival, this year we are continuing our Friday Night events to include a kids mile, 5k Glow Run, bands, food, and an expo. Whether you are looking for your best time, a fun time, or just a little down time — we look forward to showing you everything the RussVegas Half has to offer.
