Hillcrest Parking Sunday, March 2 for Little Rock Marathon

posted Feb 22, 2014, 6:55 PM by Rob King

Sunday, March 2, 2014 will be the 12th running of the Little Rock Marathon. The race has grown over the years to reach 15,000 participants this year. 3500 of those are in the actual Marathon and will be running up Kavanaugh in Miles 14 through 18. It is with a heartfelt ask to the merchants and residents of Hillcrest to park ALL motorized vehicles on the south side of Kavanaugh or on a side street from 1:00 am to 1:00 pm Sunday, March 2. This will allow the athletes to run in two west bound lanes (North side). By way of example the North side of Kavanaugh is where Pulaski Heights Baptist Church and US Pizza are located. Past photos show athletes in the open east bound lanes of traffic which is very dangerous.

The race has grown to a level of needing two lanes and the parking lane is the most logical and community friendly way to have a successful event through Hillcrest. Athletes will be arriving in your community as early as 8:45 am with the wheelchair athletes until 12:30 pm. Your support has been tremendous and appreciated. 

Signs will be posted race week (February 24-28). Hillcrest residents should note that any vehicles parked on the North side of Kavanaugh during this timeframe may be subject to towing. Please share the word and help us provide safe roads for the athletes.

If you have any questions please contact Gina Marchese Pharis at gmarchese@littlerock.org .

Thank you for your assistance!
