Welcome! We're glad you came to check us out, and we look forward to seeing you at our race.

This is a runners' race, organized by runners, directed by runners, and benefiting runners. All proceeds benefit the Vilonia Cross Country team. We want to instill a love of running in these young athletes, a passion for the sport they will carry throughout their lives.

We offer a USATF certified 5K course (#AR13014DLP). The race starts in front of Vilonia High School and finishes on the track inside Philip Weaver Stadium. Our two-loop course through the Vilonia School District main campus is flat and fast. Many experienced runners got their PRs here last year. We close the campus, so runners enjoy a race without traffic issues.

Participants in the 5K receive a high-quality technical race t-shirt. Kids who participate in the fun run will receive a commemorative cotton race t-shirt. Runners and spectators will have access to REAL bathrooms at the stadium (no porta-potties necessary!) And of course, we give really nice awards to the top three male and female finishers in the race, and in the masters and grand masters categories. Great-looking medals go to the top three male and female runners in the following age groups: 9 & under, 10 - 14, 15 - 19, 20 - 24, 25 - 29, 30 - 34, 35 - 39, 40 - 44, 45 - 49, 50 - 54, 55 - 59, 60 - 64, 65 - 69, 70 & above.
