Springdale Downtown Runaround set for Oct. 8

There’s a new racing event coming to Springdale this fall.

The first ever Downtown Runaround is set for Saturday, Oct. 8 in downtown Springdale.

The event, benefiting local nonprofits The Jones Center and Camp War Eagle, will include a 5k, 10k, and a fun run race showcasing areas of the downtown area including Springdale’s Shiloh Square, the Razorback Greenway, and other parts of the downtown area.

After the race, an after party featuring family-friendly activities including food, games, inflatables, and live music is planned along Emma Street.

Registration is $25 for the 5k, $35 for the 10k, and $10 for the fun run through Sept. 24, and will go up by $5 for each entry after that. Each runner will receive a race t-shirt and swag bag.
