Little Rock Marathon on Kavanaugh March 1, 2015

posted Feb 5, 2015, 1:20 PM by Rob King

Sunday, March 1, 2015 will be the 13th running of the Little Rock Marathon.  The race has grown over the years to reach 14,000 participants this year. 3000 of those are in the Marathon and will be running up Kavanaugh in Miles 12 through 15.  It is with a heartfelt ask to the merchants and residents of Hillcrest to park ALL motorized units on the south side of Kavanaugh or on a side street from 1:00 am to 1:00 pm Sunday, March 1. This will allow the athletes to run in two west bound lanes (North side).

The course is new so the bulk of athletes will be coming through a bit sooner than in the past. The half split is just west of Kavanaugh at Lee/Fairfax Terrace across from Louise. Cheer on the runners as they hit the half mark in Hillcrest. 

We need two lanes and the parking lane is the most logical and community friendly way to have a successful event through Hillcrest.  If you see a vehicle parked in the parking lane March 1 ask your neighbor, friend, spouse to move their cars so athletes have a clear path. 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 23-26). Please share the word and help us provide safe roads for the athletes.
