It’s that time again! Let’s get ready for the 2020 Run Bentonville Half Marathon. 

2019 Half Marathon

This year, the Run Bentonville Half Marathon will celebrate 10 years as Northwest Arkansas Premiere Running event. In 2019, the race had a record 3100 registered runners with 36 states represented in the half marathon, half marathon relay, and 5k. Over the past 10 years, led by the Bentonville Parks & Recreation with the help of many community partners, this event has grown significantly and is a major highlight for runners across the country.

The race kicks off on April 4th, 2020! You will not want to miss out on all of the exciting programing that is planned for our runners, including the largest medal the half marathon has ever produced! At 7 inches tall, you’re going to need to find a little extra strength at the end of the race in order to carry this one through the finish line chute.

For those traveling into Bentonville, Arkansas for the race, you’ll not have the opportunity to experience the best our city as the race ends right in front of the historic Walmart Museum on the downtown square, but also the newly opened Momentary, a new contemporary art space, located in a transformed, decommissioned cheese factory that houses visual and performing arts, culinary experiences, festivals, artist in residence and so much more! You will also want to take advantage to refuel at one of our downtown restaurants within walking distance of the finish line after 13.1.
