The 2013 Fayetteville Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run has been canceled. Race staff along with municipal, state and federal emergency agencies, University of Arkansas athletic facilities, and City of Fayetteville officials has determined that we cannot provide a course or venues that will be safe for participants. Safety of our participants, as well as our volunteers and spectators, is our primary concern. Equally so, the safety of our community residents must be considered. Due to current street and trail conditions along with continued below freezing temperatures at night and the forecast for heavy precipitation for this weekend; the decision was collaboratively made to cancel the 2013 event. The roads, trails and venues will simply not be safe to hold a running event.
We are extremely disappointed to cancel the 2013 Fayetteville Half Marathon, 5K and Fun Run. We regret that the race will not go on as planned, but are confident this decision is in the best interest of our runners, volunteers, spectators and the general public. Additionally, the Health & Fitness Expo for Saturday has been canceled. We appreciate the runners who have trained for months to participate in our race and we have a tremendous amount of respect for their efforts. We worked diligently to make a decision as late as possible in order to consider all factors, but quickly enough to ensure the safety of our participants and volunteers and to be respectful of travel considerations for out-of-town participants traveling to Fayetteville.
