And now for something entirely different.
The Running of the Bulls de la Pequena Roca is returning to the streets of Little Rock this month and it definitely makes for a unique sight.
On Saturday, Sept. 21, runners will gather in East Village to run approximately three quarters of a mile to raise money for Family Promise of Pulaski County. There's just one catch: They'll be chased by roller derby girls.
Yes, standing in for Spain's charging bulls are members of the Rock Town Roller Derby, complete with horns on their helmets and plastic bats to prod you along. The event features activities for the whole family, including a quarter-mile race for the kiddos, and since the run begins and ends at Cathead's Diner, you can expect some good eats, too.
Family Promise of Pulaski County is a local nonprofit that works with faith congregations to offer shelter, food, transportation and case management for families in need. Learn more about the organization at the nonprofit's website.
Registration starts at 3 p.m. with the kids' race kicking off at 3:30, followed by the adults run at 4 p.m., rain or shine. Click here to skip the line and register today.
