We are so excited to announce the 41st Annual Toad Suck Daze 10K and 5K Race for the Kiwanis Club of Conway. We would also like to thank our presenting sponsor for this year’s race, Conway Regional Health Systems!

We are also happy to announce that this year’s race has been designated as a Grand Prix Race by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA)!

The Tad Pole Trot, Presented by Centennial Bank will take place May 5th at 5:45 pm at the Conway High School track.  This will be a short race and is for kids ages 3-10 years old.  Prizes and t-shirts are available!


The Toad Suck Daze 10K Race was started by the Conway Kiwanis Club in 1982 and run in conjunction with the then-new Toad Suck Daze Festival. In 1984, First National Bank (now Regions) began a race in memory of a fellow employee, Randy Baker, who died of cancer. The Randy Baker 8K was conducted for two years, with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society. In 1986, the Conway Kiwanis Club approached Regions Bank, and the two races were combined.  The annual Toad Suck Daze Run is held in memory of Randy Baker, with proceeds benefiting non-profit agencies supporting children in the Faulkner County community.  The 2022 recipients included:  Children's Advocacy Alliance, Community Connections, Community Service Inc, Compass Academy, HAVEN, Main Stage Education Series at Reynolds Performance Hall, Conway Area Youth Leadership Institute, and Milestones Services Inc.


Today, the Run includes both a 10K and a 5K Run/Walk, a Wheelchair event, a Tadpole Trot for children ages 3-10. Since its inception, the run has contributed over $450,000 to support local non-profits, and the Run strives to increase its contributions to the Faulkner County community each year.

Online registration will be cut off Friday, May 5th at 11:00 am.  Runners can still register for the race by filling out paper registration forms at:
