Arkansas 2010 Grand Prix Running Calendar Released

Zoie Clift 

For those runners out there, the 2010
Arkansas Grand Prix calendar has been released, and from the looks of it the lineup showcases a range of road and cross-country races from across the
state. The Grand Prix is a year-long series of 20 races put on by the Arkansas
chapter of the Road Runners Club of America.  As many runners know, running is a great way to get a feel
for a city. Actually, many cities in the nation have latched onto the concept
and guided running tours are offered in spots such as New York City, Washington
DC, Chicago, Austin, and Charleston. 
If exploring Arkansas via foot is on your list, here are a list of road
races you can tackle along the way and throughout the year:
