Registration is now open for The Hogeye Marathon series and it’s a pretty pig deal that you go and register for this race today! The Hogeye will take place on April 8, 2017. The Hogeye Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier so if you are looking for a race to qualify for the 2018 Boston Marathon this one is for you!
This year marks the 41st year that The Hogeye has been run and features full marathon, a half-marathon and a marathon relay. In addition to the marathon series of races, there is also a 5K option which makes The Hogeye the perfect event for runners of all abilities.
This year’s race has a new course and runners will be running in Springdale, Arkansas as they tackle their respective challenge. The new course will take runners past the city’s five major parks and, as in previous years, will include a portion of the Lake Fayetteville Trail. The course will be run primarily on Springdale streets, but sections will run through Johnson and Fayetteville, and a small portion of the 26.2-mile course will take place on the Razorback Greenway.
The Hogeye has some of the most reasonable registration fees around with the marathon priced at $80 and the half-marathon running $60.
All marathon and half-marathon finishers will receive a medal upon completion of the course. Tech shirts are also provided to all runners as part of the entry fee.
