Marathon, 20 K
Benton, Arkansas
Click to go to the web site for the Arkansas Marathon in Benton, Arkansas

The Arkansas Marathon is one of the older continuous marathons in the United States. The Saline County Striders assumed responsibility for this race in 2003, taking over from Dale Burns of the Malvern Runners who directed this race for the previous 10 years. The marathon starts 1 hour before the Arkansas 20K, and uses the same start and finish lines as the 20K, beginning and ending on Border Street in front of Cook Field House. The course basically follows the last half of the previous Arkansas Marathon course between Malvern and Benton. This includes the first 4.7 miles of the Arkansas 20K course, after which it continues south on Highway 67, under Interstate 30, and turns right on the eastbound I-30 frontage road. Upon reaching the end of the frontage road, the course continues into hilly rural areas of the county before swinging back to Highway 67 on Point View Road. The course turns right on Highway 67. Just under ¾ mile down Highway 67, the course turns east (left) on Holly Ridge Road and follows Holly Ridge approximately 7/10 mile to the turnaround point. The runners then return by the same route.

The 20K is an excellent test/training run for a fall marathon while the Arkansas Marathon is excellent preparation for a late fall marathon. Both are challenging races in their own right.
