LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Little Rock Marathon race officials today announced that registration will open at 10 a.m. on Aug. 1 for its 2018 event to be held March 3-4, 2018. The Little Rock Marathon Weekend is presented by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and benefits Little Rock Parks & Recreation.

Registration for the Little Rockers Kids Marathon will open in late August. 

The Little Rock Marathon offers a training program to individuals participating in the 2018 race.  Official training begins Sept. 18 with a “build-up” training phase that begins Aug. 7.  The Little Rock Marathon Training Program, presented by Bill Torrey’s Rock City Running and KARK Channel 4, is free of charge but registration is required.   

Registration will be available online at through 8:00 a.m. CST Feb. 23, 2018.  

In the past, all races have sold out, due in part to the famously large finisher’s medals and fun race themes.  Race officials anticipate another sell out before the end of the year.
