Registration is almost full for both the marathon and half marathon races.
Anyone who wants to run the race but has not yet signed up is encouraged to do so right away.
There are less than 200 spots available in the marathon and 400 spots in the half marathon.
According to Gina Marchese Pharis, Co-Executive Director of the Little Rock Marathon, both races will fill up by the weekend based on current registration trends.
“Each year we have had a nice increase in participation from the previous year and we are excited that we will continue that trend,” said Pharis. “Our team works tirelessly to make sure every athlete’s experience is unforgettable. We put on a quality event; our volunteers are the epitome of true southern hospitality; the City of Little Rock rolls out the red carpet for our athletes, and we give the world’s largest marathon finisher’s medal."
Once races are full they will be closed to registration. The registration cap was established in 2008 to ensure a safe, quality race experience for all participants.
Race officials are preparing for 9,000 participants and 25,000 spectators race weekend.
