Village Creek the Legend! Lace ‘em up tight! Like we always say, “Mud, Sweat, and Tears!” That’s what you will find here at Village Creek State Park. The 31st and 2nd largest in Arkansas. Located just 6 miles south of Wynne, Village Creek State Park encompasses nearly 7,000 acres. We have an amazing multi-use trail system that is virtually untouched by the running community most of the year. Equestrian, Mountain Bike, and Hiking Trails combine to form a little over 26 miles of manicured sweetness atop the geologic anomaly know as Crowley’s Ridge.
Local time: 2:56 PM
Our race features a multitude of ups and downs, both physically and emotionally! Your day will consist of creeks, mud, leaves, sticks, steep ridgelines, and our infamous rolling pipeline. All the while a tub of buttercream icing and warm homemade cinnamon rolls wait for you at the finish.
The start/finish sits at the edge of our lower campground and boasts some of the most pristine bath houses of any state park! You can camp so close to the start line that all ya gotta do is roll over toot, tinkle, brush, and run! If cabins are more your thing, no fear! Village Creek has a number of 5 star cabins available just up the hill towards Lake Dunn.
The 25k has a 6.5 hour time limit. You have approximately 3hr and 15min to make it to our bib check at the 25k turn around. If you are not at the turn around by the 3:15 mark chances are you aren’t gonna get a cinnamon roll….I kid, I kid! You just won't get a hot one!
The 25K is an out and back route starting at the bicycle entrance to the following markers 13,14,11,10,16,17,18, north past 19 towards 20 where you will reach the turnaround. Aid stations will be at approximate half way points for both races. This is a cup free race! Bring your own bottles! No lippin’ the jug! The 10k will follow markers 13,14,11,10,9,7,6,12,13, and back to the bicycle entrance. ! You must be registered by January 20, 2020 to guarantee a hoodie or t-shirt.
