The 3rd annual Winslow Half Marathon and 5k Run will take place on September 14th in the historic village of Winslow. Sponsored by the Winslow Community Development Council and numerous local and regional businesses, the race benefits community nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised over eight thousand dollars and attracted more than three hundred race participants from Northwest Arkansas and across the country. Race organizers hope to build on past year’s successes and have set an upper limit of five hundred runners for this year’s race.
The certified and chip timed Half Marathon starts at 8:00 at the Winslow Library and follows a challenging in an out course ending at the finish line at Peek’s Park. Runner’s, visitors and locals will once again be treated to a community expo at the park. Park festivities include displays by local artists, non profit and community organizations, live music and a barbecue luncheon provided by Winslow Community Meals. Festivities wrap up around noon, just in time for the 31st Annual Winfest local music festival.
