Little Rock, Arkansas – In order to host a Global Running Day event, Little Rock Marathon race officials are partnering with Rock City Running and Little Rock Parks & Recreation.
According to event planners, the organizations will hold a running/walking event at 6 a.m. on June 1 at Murray Park. The event is held to promote running and/or walking as a healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise.
