Informational meeting to be held for 2014 Little Rock Marathon

An informational meeting for individuals interested in training for the 2014 Little Rock Marathon races will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, in the River Market, 3rd floor, 400 President Clinton Avenue in Little Rock.

Race officials recently announced that KARK Channel 4 has renewed its sponsorship of the Little Rock Marathon Training Program. The free running/walking program was created to prepare individuals who plan to take part in one of the races in March and is a project of Little Rock Parks & Recreation. Bill Torrey’s Rock City Running will join KARK in sponsoring the 2014 Training Program.

"KARK has supported our efforts since inception, so its community-minded spirit matches perfectly with our mission," said Nancy Green, chairman of the Little Rock Marathon. "KARK provides an ideal flagship pre-race education for the thousands training for this year’s race."  

"We at KARK are proud to sponsor this program because anyone and everyone can participate in it," said KARK Marketing Director Allan Snyder. "Whether you’re walking or running, whether you’re a beginner or advanced… there’s a training program for you. It’s really about setting and achieving goals, and living a healthy lifestyle. That’s what really matters."

The “build up” training program is currently under way with the program’s first official group training scheduled in September.
