Come enjoy the fall weather at Cane Creek State Park's first Five Dollar 5/10/25K. Early November is the perfect time of year for a long trail run in southeast Arkansas. On top of that, the entry fee is practically nothing! Come out and have a nice run, then enjoy a little snack and some swag from local sponsors. Contact the park for more information and race course maps.
The course is all over the trails of Cane Creek State Park. The race offers 5, 10 and 25K distances. All distances include 15-30% road. The trail system features numerous short ups and downs through the Gulf Coast Plain forest of south-central Arkansas. Fifty-two bridges add challenge to the park's 18+ miles of trail. The 25K will include 4.5 miles along the Cane Creek Lake levee. Be prepared for off-road trail running conditions. There will be one aid station for the 5K, two for the 10K, and 4 for the 25K.
