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

    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!

    Great race, good swag, good course support. Nice medals and awards. All aspects of the race went smooth. Weather was less than ideal but the RD can’t control the weather.
    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.
