About This Activity

To ensure you receive a run shirt, registration must be submitted by Friday, March 4, 2016.

Arkansas Run for the Fallen 5K is an opportunity for the public to run alongside our core run team for the final three miles towards the finish, arriving at the steps of the Arkansas State Capitol at approximately 2:10p.m. with the ceremony at 2:30p.m. on March 20, 2016.

If registering for the final 5K of the Arkansas Run for the Fallen you will be expected to maintain a 10:00 mile to keep pace with the Run Team. Starting time is 1:40 pm on Sunday, March 20, 2016. To participate, please arrive at the State Capitol near the front steps no later than 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 20, 2016. Registration will be available the day of the run, however, you will not be guaranteed a shirt.  At 1:00 p.m. you will be transported by our friends at Arkansas Military Vehicle Preservation Association to the starting point of the 5k to join the run team as they come into town and make their way towards the Capitol.

We begin the 5K by meeting the core run team and continuing through downtown. Finally arriving, as a group, at the Arkansas State Capitol for the ceremony honoring our fallen heroes. This final 5k is not a race. There are no timing chips and no winners. Rather, it is an opportunity for people to come together to show their support for the fallen and run together as a team to show that support. If you are not a runner, please consider joining us at the state Capitol for the closing ceremony at 2:30 PM.

We are excited to announce that this year we will be having honor bibs. These bibs say "I'm running in honor of..." and you will be able to write in the name of the fallen hero you would like to run in honor of.

Please be aware that we are unable to have the streets closed for this event. However, we do have police escorts and civilian motorcycle escorts. Our goal is to arrive at the state capitol as a group. If you cannot maintain a 10 min/mile pace we cannot guarantee escorts and you will be asked to move to the sidewalk for your safety.

To ensure you receive a run shirt, registration must be submitted by Friday, March 4, 2016. The cost to register for the 5k is $25.
