Northwest Arkansas’ newest 5K features an exciting twist in its running route. The inaugural 5K @ the LPGA, will take place Saturday, June 27 and will allow participants the opportunity to run along the beautiful Pinnacle Country Club golf course, home of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G. Starting and finishing at the Walmart AMP, the race route winds its way through the Pinnacle Country Club Community and onto the golf course through the Gatorade Loudest Hole on Tour, #17.
The Gatorade Loudest Hole on Tour has earned its name year after year with enthusiastic sports fans coming out in droves to cheer on their favorite LGPA players throughout the weekend. The hole features a stadium-style build with structures surrounding it on all sides; include an Entrance Tunnel welcoming general spectators to the tournament grounds. 5K @ the LPGA runners will run along the course and through the tunnel, getting an up close glimpse of this exciting hole.
The chip-timed 5K will start at 7:30a.m., with registration beginning at 6:30a.m. Early registration is $20 until June 22 and race week registration is $25. Runners will receive a performance t-shirt, gift bag and post-race breakfast at the Walmart AMP. The race will benefit the Mercy Hospital Foundation of Northwest Arkansas.
Runners of all ages are encouraged to participate in this unique 5K experience during LPGA week in Northwest Arkansas. Those interested can sign up today at www.nwachampionship.com.
