Fayetteville Race Series

Parks and Recreation launched a new program in 2015, the Fayetteville Race Series. This series is comprised of 6-8 annual events that vary between running, cycling, and multi-sport activities. Each event is different and offers something for everyone. Until now, Parks and Recreation has not offered programs of the racing nature. In a place like Fayetteville, where beautiful parks and trails are in abundance, there are plenty of ways to be physically active in the community! By offering a race series, Parks and Recreation plans to enhance the already active culture of Northwest Arkansas, while also reaching a new audience. The Fayetteville Race Series is a grassroots effort that will grow to become a premier race series here in Arkansas.
