Bentonville Running Festival: Four Days Til Race Time

Jill M. Rohrbach

The Bentonville Running Festival is a weekend of fun for runners as well as the whole family. There are four days left until race time – so hurry up and register, or make sure to mark it on your calendar if you just plan to watch and enjoy the associated activities.

The race weekend will feature a half marathon, 5K, fun run, Runner’s Expo, Pasta Party and Post Race Celebration with tons of food, music, vendors, and inflatables for kids.

Seasoned runners will love the event. But don’t worry if you’re a first time runner because the event is designed for you as well.

All of the runs begin and end on the downtown Bentonville square. The half marathon route winds through residential neighborhoods,  city parks, finishing on an urban trail. While the half marathon is a loop, the 5K follows much of its path except it is an out and back. The fun run route ends at the finish line with the other half marathoners and the 5K runners.

The Bentonville square is the place to be this Saturday, April 2!
