KARK Renews Little Rock Marathon Training Program Sponsorship


LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (August 9, 2013) – Race officials recently announced today that KARK Channel 4 has renewed its sponsorship of the Little Rock Marathon Training Program. 


The Little Rock Marathon Training Program is a free running/walking program created to prepare individuals who plan to take part in one of the races next March and is a project of Little Rock Parks & Recreation. Bill Torrey’s Rock City Running will join KARK in sponsoring the 2014 Training Program.


"KARK has supported our efforts since inception, so its community-minded spirit matches perfectly with our mission," said Nancy Green, Little Rock Marathon Chairman. "KARK provides an ideal flagship pre-race education for the thousands training for this year's race."


"We at KARK are proud to sponsor this program because anyone and everyone can participate in it," said KARK Marketing Director Allan Snyder.  "Whether you're walking or running, whether you're a beginner or advanced... there's a training program for you.  It's really about setting and achieving goals, and living a healthy lifestyle.  That's what really matters."


The “build up” training program is currently underway with the program’s first official group training will be Saturday, September 16.  An informational meeting for individuals interested in training for the 2014 races will be Tuesday, August 20 at 6 pm in the River Market, 3rd floor, 400 President Clinton Avenue in Little Rock.
