Hogeye Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K & Relays

Saturday, March 28, 2020 • Springdale, AR • Course Map

Runners get a chance to take in the sometimes hilly but always scenic streets of the home of the University of Arkansas at the Hogeye Marathon, Half Marathon & Relays, which starts and finishes in nearby Springdale and features trail and road stretches into Fayetteville.

Filled with many rolling and some steep hills along both the half- and full-marathon courses, the race is set to feature a newly designed course this year, an out-and-back loop that will start and finish on Emma Avenue overlooking Spring Creek in Springdale, just outside Fayetteville.

The race takes runners along a clockwise, out-and-back course that winds past Friendship Cemetery and within sight of Lake Fayetteville, a route organizers say is plenty scenic and with mostly gently rolling hills.

More than 1,100 runners crossed the finish line in all three races combined at the event’s 2016 running — including just over 700 runners at the half marathon alone — so the race offers a sizeable crowd with plenty of fellow travelers along the race route, without drawing overwhelming crowds.

Race Weather & Climate

Located in the state’s northwestern corner, about a three-hour drive from Arkansas’ capital city of Little Rock, Springdale typically experiences mild to moderately cool (and sometimes cold) weather in the early spring. In March, temperatures average between 38°F and 59°F, while rainfall totals average just over 4 inches for the month.

On the day of the race (March 28), the average low is 41°F and the average high is 63°F.
