LR Marathon set March 2-3

Organizers have already begun working on the 17th Annual Little Rock Marathon, planned March 2-3 in Little Rock.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette will return as presenting sponsor of the 17th Annual Little Rock Marathon Weekend. Registration will open soon. Registration usually opens in August each year, but organizers will be opening 2019 registration by Memorial Day and will be offering discounts.

For the 2019 event, there will be a new start time on Sunday and an early start is back, with marathoners needing more than 6 1/2 hours to complete the marathon course allowed to start early. The early start must be requested at registration and all requests will be reviewed.

Only 300 athletes will be accepted.
