Description

The Fayetteville Firefighters Hero Half Marathon is a fundraising race and community event hosted in partnership with the Fayetteville Firefighters’ IAFF – Local 2866 and The Spark Foundation, Inc. Race proceeds benefit organizations that meet important community needs, increase fitness opportunities for the community, and make Fayetteville, Arkansas a great place to live, work, and play.

This scenic, chip-timed, point-to-point race originates at beautiful Lake Fayetteville. Runners wind their way through the green heart of this charming college town on extensive paved, multi-use trails that make up part of the Razorback Regional Greenway, a world-class trail system linking six communities. Racers will experience a safe, fun, well-marked, well-supported race that culminates with a sneaky hill in the last mile.

The race finishes in historic downtown Fayetteville where participants will be greeted with a festival-like atmosphere that includes music, food, the Columbus House Brewery beer garden, local vendors, sponsor booths, and activities for children. The race coincides with Fire Safety Awareness week and includes a 9/11 Memorial to commemorate the sacrifices made then and now by firefighters, law enforcement, and first responders. Proceeds support organizations that meet important community needs, celebrate an active lifestyle, and honor the heroes in our everyday lives.
