LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 23, 2017) -- Little Rock Marathon race officials are making final preparations for its inaugural Creep ‘N Crawl Fun Run to be held at 5 p.m. October 28 at Two Rivers Park.

The Creep ‘N Crawl Fun Run benefits Little Rock Parks & Recreation.

The Halloween-themed event will include timed 10K and 5K races, a Lil’ Monsters Dash for children under 10, a virtual race, and a costume contest.

“We wanted to create a new family event,” said Gina Pharis, co-executive director of the Little Rock Marathon. “The Creep ‘N Crawl replaces our Mud Run and is a great way for us to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through running and walking. It will be a ‘howlin’ ghoul time’.”

“This event will be a great time for families and friends to come out and enjoy the nice autumn weather and festive atmosphere,” said John Eckhart, Director of Little Rock Parks and Recreation. “The race course runs through the grounds of Two Rivers Park, providing an opportunity to showcase the beautiful fall colors and excellent trails in our park.”
