Event Details:

The race is under the direction of the White River Roadrunners, a running club to serve the runners of North Arkansas. Information on how to become a member of the club can be found at the registration table on race day.

The race begins on Main Street, between 9th and 10th Streets, and is downhill for about seven blocks. Runners will then make a right turn on Bayou Street and continue downhill while crossing the Golden Overpass. The route continues on Bayou Street with a couple of small, rolling hills until just past the one-mile mark. 
Soon after passing this mark, runners will begin a gradual climb of approximately six-tenths of a mile up North Heights Street, followed by a right turn on Craig Street and a quick descent for about two-tenths of a mile. The course then turns right on Hill Street, where runners will soon pass the half-way point.
The route continues on Hill Street for a relatively flat four-tenths of a mile before turning left on Carter Street, just past West Elementary School. From Carter Street, runners will make a right turn onto Charles Street, which loops back around to Bayou Street. After making a left turn on Bayou Street, runners will soon begin a steep climb to go back across the Golden Overpass and finish the third mile. 
Just after the three-mile mark, the course makes a left turn onto Water Street and begins a gradual increase in elevation for approximately one-half of a mile. Runners will then make a right turn onto 10th Street for a quick climb before making a final right onto Main Street for a fast five blocks downhill to the finish.

Early Start: If you would like to do a 15 minute early start, just see Mac prior to 7:00am and we'll sort it out.

Packet pickup is located at 500 Main St. At the Batesville Municipal Building starting at 6am on Saturday morning.
