- Race 13.1 will hold its second half marathon, 10k and 5k event in Little Rock, AR on Sunday, October 9, 2016! Located in the city that USA TODAY readers recently named the No. 3 best travel-worth state capital, Race 13.1 Little Rock course will have a great mix of local sites and beautiful greenways and trails, including the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge, Arkansas River Trail, Riverfront Park and Burns Park.
The mostly flat course will start and finish at the Clinton Presidential Center located in downtown Little Rock before following an out-and-back route along the Arkansas River on the North Little Rock side. Throughout the weekend, be sure to visit one of the nearby parks as well as the Little Rock River Market - one of Little Rock's 'best spots to eat, shop, play and stay!'
