The Northwest Arkansas Hogeye tradition continues. . . It’s a PRETTY PIG DEAL! The new Hogeye Marathon course will take runners past the city’s five major parks and, as in previous years, will include a portion of the Lake Fayetteville Trail. The course will be run primarily on Springdale streets, … MORE

    I really like the race production and RD. Everything was extremely well organized. Unfortunately, I was uninformed about the number of hills and the heat got to me before the end. Count it up to bad planning on my part. Watch the weather on this race… it can be extreme.

    This was a GREAT EVENT! It was well run, well organized. The volunteers were AWESOME, the water stops were practically EVERY SINGLE MILE. They all had water, of course, most had gatorade (some full strength and some diluted) and MANY MANY had fuel as well! Gels, chews, oranges, etc… The people at each station were plentiful, encouraging, and positive! (There were a FEW spots where volunteers were supposed to be guiding runners on the course (turn here, not that way, etc) and at LEAST one stop the teenagers who were there (no adult) were laying in the path (effectively blocking the WRONG WAY, I’ll give them that) but it was a little ridiculous and at mile 22.5, you don’t have a lot of energy to be amused at ridiculous. The medals are big and heavy with a spinner and glitter. Loved it. The SIGNS at each mile were BIG! You knew where you were! There were some NOT scenic parts of Springdale we ran through, but there were some BEAUTIFUL PARTS! I had low expectations of Arkansas, but I left VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!! If I were taking a survey and it asked me my opinion of the Hogeye Marathon is much better than before! I would go back and run it again (despite the hills) and that is saying something since I would NOT go back and run the DC RnR again. Nope never. I would highly recommend this one. GREAT value for the price, and a great positive experience! Also the photos are free! Another huge plus in my book!

    This is a beautiful run, much of it through parks in Springdale and Fayetteville, AR. The area is hilly, but the course was not too bad – a few significant climbs between miles 12 – 15. The run went through the minor league ballpark – a nice touch. Starting line was easy to get to with plenty of nearby parking. Volunteers were at every crossing even thought it was a cold and blustery day. Excellent race.

    I really enjoyed this race even though the weather was cold and super windy. The course has some rolling hills and has some parts that move from road to paved running trails. Community support was great. A few more port-a-poties at the start would have been good and a better communication regarding hotel shuttle buses and replying to Facebook communications. Post race food was great!

    Need port-a-pots at the start line. Not enough bathrooms at preface.

    This was a very cool course. I was skeptical of moving the race of Fayetteville, but the city of Springdale really works hard to provide support and security for the runners. The race displays the trails and the streets via this course so there was a lot to take in. We even ran inside of the Arkansas Naturals AA baseball stadium. Post race swag and food was the best I’ve ever seen.

    NWA has a fun running community. The organization at The Hogeye has a long history and is set to continue well into the future. The 2015 course was the 2nd of 3 major route changes. This course took you through downtown Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas and utilized the Razorback Greenway trail system with a nice loop around Lake Fayetteville. Now the race has moved a wee bit north into Springdale, but the course looks very promising. I can’t wait to run the new course on my birthday in a few more years.
