What to know
Welcome to the 53rd Annual Arkansas Marathon, Half-Marathon, Booneville 10K Run, & 5K Walk/Run. The Arkansas Marathon is one of the oldest and most unique marathons in the South. The race is not crowded, parking is easy and the scenery is great. In fact, you may find yourself sharing the road with deer, turkey, squirrels and an odd rabbit or two. The road course places you with the view of Mt. Magazine, the tallest mountain in 11 states, and along the boundary between the Ozark National Forest and the Ouachita National Forest. Our route is unique as the start you run out on Highway 23 and turn around and return to the finish line where you started. Plenty of close parking. No riding a bus, no waiting in line, just a great day to run. We invite you to come enjoy a great run in a unique Marathon. We are looking forward to seeing you in South Logan County!
