Let’s hit pause. 

In light of surging COVID-19 cases, Little Rock Marathon organizers recently announced they’re postponing 2021 events to Nov. 20-21. This includes the full and half marathon, as well as the 10K and 5K races.

The team has noted its dedication to hosting in-person races, and decided a safe March race would be logistically impossible.

They said in a statement:

Race organizers and the City of Little Rock made the decision to move race weekend activities, citing the challenges of staging an event of this scale at this time and out of concern for the safety of event participants, volunteers, event staff and spectators. 

As for the November dates, these were chosen based on availability of the Statehouse Convention Center and city resources.

More updates are coming soon, but already registered participants now have the option to move to their registration to November or defer to the 2022 race.
