The Race

Now in its fourth year, the Hero Half Marathon is hosted by the Fayetteville Firefighters’ IAFF Local 2866 in partnership with The Spark Foundation to honor and celebrate the dedication and contribution of our everyday heroes. Race proceeds benefit local organizations that meet important community needs, increase fitness opportunities for all ages, and make Fayetteville–and all of Arkansas–a great place to live, work, and play. Will you join us?
