Community Spotlight: Hero Half Marathon

Today Pete talks with Melissa Caffrey of The Spark Foundation about the Hero Half Marathon, coming up this Sunday, October 13th.  This walk-friendly race includes options for every kind of runner, ranging from a half-marathon race to a one mile run. 

The half marathon starts at 6 AM at Lokomotion and will end at the Finish Line Festival on Dickson Street, near the Race Headquarters located in the Walton Arts Center parking lot. 

The Finish Line Festival will feature a variety of food, music, and family-friendly activities, as well as a Columbus House Brewery beer garden.  This event is open to the public. 

Tickets for each race are available at https://runsignup.com/Race/AR/Fayetteville/TheHeroHalfMarathon .
