The Little Rock Marathon 2020
Get out the hairspray and dust off your leg warmers for the Little Rock Marathon coming up this weekend Saturday February 29th and Sunday March 1st. And if you’re not running in the race, it’s fun to go support the runners and to stop by some of your favorite Downtown Little Rock businesses participating in the festivities this year: Dugan’s Pub, Stone’s Throw Brewing, The Root Cafe, Boulevard Bread, Mockingbird Bar and Tacos, Rock Town Distillery, Vino’s and more.
If you are running in the race and need to carb load the night before, check out some great spots in our neighborhood: Damgoode Pies, Dizzy’s Gypsy Bistro, Ciao Italian, Bruno’s Little Italy Downtown, Raduno Brick Oven and Barroom, Buenos Aires Grill or Three Fold Noodles.
Some of the runners will be coming through Downtown so be sure to watch for the signs that mark where the marathon will be in our neighborhood and where the roads will be closed. The 5K and 10K and kid’s race will take place on Saturday morning, followed by the full and half marathons which are set for Sunday. The Little Rock Marathon was named one of the great marathons for first timers and is known for the larger than life medals. This weekend Little Rock will host people from around the United States to run in our race for every pace. Let’s be sure to welcome them to our neighborhood!
