  • Did the event in 2015

    This was my last marathon of 2015, and I registered kind of late. It was a Saturday race, which is sometimes a little harder to get to, and Little Rock was a little expensive to fly into, but it was worth it. There wasn't really an expo, just packet pick up at a running store (which happened to be next to a grocery store...score!! Race morning breakfast purchases made!). I prefer no expo, so again, this was a good thing in my opinion.I stayed at a hotel just a mile or two away from one of the two designated parking spots. This was pretty convenient - no need to worry about getting to the start and parking. Instead, I parked in a large church parking lot and took the bus to the starting area. The start was great. It's the only marathon I've run where there was a heated tent for runners to hang out in, which in December, was very nice. They had coffee, water, and snacks pre-race and we only had to walk around the corner to the start. There were plenty of portajohns nearby as well. Definitely one of the best pre race starting areas I've experienced. The sunrise was lovely too!The start was smooth. The whole course was really nice; I was astounded by the quantity and quality of footpaths by the river. They were asphalt and in great condition, with nice views pretty much the whole time. The last 10k was more in a park with small, rolling hills, but also pleasant. You cross three bridges (hence the name) which meant some incline, and there are a few minor hills during the course as well, but nothing bad in my opinion. The bridges were like milestones, I started looking forward to them because they had nice views and meant we were making progress.Aid stations and volunteers were great. It's not the type of race you run for thousands of cheering people along the course, but it was very pretty and quite enjoyable and I met some cool runners along the route, one of which I ran with for about 16 miles. I tend to prefer scenic over crowd anyway. You run back by the finish around mile 20 and cross a bridge that leads into that park area by the river. On the one hand you're thinking "crap that's the finish but I'm not done..." but on the other hand it's a party atmosphere and the announcer calls your name and where you're from on the PA, so that's cool. He also says it again as you re-cross the bridge to finish right at about mile 26.1. It didn't bother me to pass the finish but some people might find it a bit of a bummer.The post-race atmosphere was fun and there was a good selection of food and drink. The shuttles back to the parking lots were also great, as they ran pretty frequently right by the finish area, and dropped you off at your lot. From there I only had a mile or two to drive to my hotel.The t-shirt was a nice long sleeve tech shirt. The medal was so-so but not bad. The real prize, pun intended' were the age group awards. I placed in my division and collected a SWEET plaque to hang on my wall. Great swag in my opinion, with minimum hassle and a beautiful, extremely well-organized race. Bottom line, if you need Arkansas for your 50 states quest, I HIGHLY recommend this race. It's one of my favorites, and not just because we had beautiful, sunny, cool weather. It really felt like a marathon for runners, by runners, and it showed with every detail. I don't anticipate running repeat races if I can help it, but this is one I would consider running again just because I enjoyed it so much.

    Ran this as my first full marathon. Fantastic course support with aid stations almost every mile. Spectator guide made it easy for family to find places on the course to drive to and cheer me on. Beautiful scenery with most of the course along the paved Arkansas River Trail. Perfect cool, sunny weather. Would definitely recommend to others and plan to run this again next year!

  • Did the event in 2019

    I did this race in 2017 too. A friend was finishing her 50 state challenge and when I found out it was this race, I didn't hesitate to come back! Even the Half medals are quite large, although not the dinner plate size ones for the full marathon. They always have a fun theme every year - which always leads to fun costumes! It was cold and we had rain, but hey....it is March. It will always be a gamble and you should be prepared for anything! Typical tech shirt. I always get the mens or unisex shirt and it ran true to size or a bit large - which I'm happy with! Excellent expo. I recommend the VIP perks. Chicken noodle soup and coffee hit the spot after the cold/rainy race! I don't find the Elevation particularly difficult, but I come from the hills of Northeast Ohio....so maybe you would if you are more used to a flat course. There was one bridge this time. You went over it out and then looped around and came back. Bridge = hill. I had a cheat with parking/access as I stayed downtown at the Marriott (highly recommended too), but last time we stayed by the airport and did fine with taking Uber to the race. This is a VERY well run race and I highly recommend it! You'll have a great time!

    I ran the 5k with my daughter on Saturday and the half on Sunday with my husband. It was a busy weekend with some cold and rain and a little snow. So mich to see and do (eat) around the race area all weekend it’s a wonder I could run. But run we did and despite the weather we had a great time! Highly recommend
  • Did the event in 2019

    This was by far my toughest and worst marathon but none of the reasons had anything to do with the event itself. I ran this race just 2 weeks after being diagnosed with the flu and really felt like I didn't have enough time to recover properly. And then the weather didn't do any of the runners any favors!
    The city of Little Rock absolutely goes all out for runners the weekend of the marathon. There are tons of signs around downtown and in front of restaurants and bars welcoming runners to the city. That's always a great thing to see when you're away from home.
    The expo was well done although a little smaller than I expected. I think the race organizers do such a good job of hyping up the race that it's easy to forget that the actual race itself is pretty small in terms of number of runners. But, they had plenty of merchandise and good vendors to visit with so no complaints.
    The day of the race the weather did exactly what was forecast, very cold with off and on rain for the first 2 hours which shifted over to sleet and snow for about another hour and then came the north wind blowing from 10 to 20mph. Since this was according to forecast, most of the runners were dressed appropriately, but there is no way to not be cold when you're wet and the wind chill drops into the 20's. None of this is the fault of the race directors, of course, and there was actually fairly good crowd support in spite of the weather.
    The course itself hits a lot of Little Rock highlights. It goes directly in front of Little Rock Central High School, the state capitol building, and the governor's mansion. The back half of the marathon goes through some sketchy areas and there is a long out and back along a bike path that is a little boring but there's no way the entire course could be perfect.
    I will say this course is the toughest that I have done so far. The hills are steep and long and come one after the other. In the early sections there is usually a nice downhill to get some recovery but the later hills don't go back down much at all. As noted by other reviewers there is a rough hill between 24 and 25 that is not a welcome sight at that point in the race.
