It’s almost time for a race in Fayetteville.

The annual Razorback Run will return to town for 5k and 15 events set for Sunday, Oct. 6 beginning at the NWA Mall and making its way up the Razorback Greenway.

The event began in the 1970s as a fall race opposite the Hogeye Marathon in the spring. The two events coincided for about 15 years before the Razorback Run went on hiatus. The event returned in 2014 with the slogan “bringing back the tracks,” and has been a fall tradition ever since.

The event includes a 15k, as well as a 5k run/walk.

Registration is $45 for the 15k, and $30 for the 5k. Rates go up on Sept. 22.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Washington County Animal Shelter & he Wheelchairs for Children project.
