    Very flat course! Only one small overpass at mile 12 and the rest is flat. Great community support. BLING is the best! Races for the entire family. Awesome charity event for Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
    Very organized and well out on. Must do for Arkansas.

    You can not ask for a better race, couple of hills one being an overpass and it is a fast course unless a turtle like me. Plenty of cheering sections and course support, Excellent race director and the community really turns our for the event, The glow run the night before combined with the half marathon gives you a Double Down option which is a 3rd medal for the weekend.

    I love this race so much! This year, I was a week from having a stomach virus. I thought I was well enough to do the race, but about 6/7 miles in I couldn’t go on. The race people and cops were amazing with getting me to the finish. It sucked that I didn’t complete it, but I’m thankful for all of the support from the race people. You need to do this race! Their bling and swag gets better every year. The cause is incredible—a children’s hospital. There were kids at the finish giving the medals. It was so sweet! The finish line had great food, activities, and vendors. It was great!

    This race was incredible. For a small race, it is impressive! The swag is outstanding—great medal! The people putting on the race were so sweet and amazing! I had never been to Russellville, but this race truly exposed the participants to it so well! The course is gorgeous. I would love to do this race every year! I recommend this to everyone! It’s a great race and they keep improving every single year!

    Me, My fiancee & her parents ran this half marathon together. This was my first time running the Russvegas half & i couldn’t be happier with the experience!
    It felt like the whole town was involved with the race, cheering everyone on as they ran past their “spirit station”, as you run throughout the town. The support alone will make me want to run in this race again.
    The course is fairly flat with a steep hill at an overpass before you get to mile 12. You start the race downtown as you run along a few neighborhoods, onto main street out to the lake, run past some farm fields, back into town, you run through the college as you make your way back to the finish about 2 blocks away from where you start.
    The finisher medal is nice! Any medal that lights up and spins has to be added to your collections.
    The packet pickup/expo was fairly small. mostly the sponsors tent with 1-2 canopies for race gear/russvegas apparel but the race pullover was really nice & they had some great deals on previous race years apparel.
    We will definitely run this race again soon. We cant wait to go back!

    The bling is awesome. Any time you have a spinning thing on the medal it is great. The course is fairly flat with a few hills the highest and steepest is a small overpass about mile 12. The crowd support is awesome with live bands on course and plenty of aid and cheering stations. It is spectator friendly. The spectators can walk short distances and see the racers at several points along the race. I will be running thsi race again this April for my 4th time. I have vowed to run it every year as long as I am able to.
