"I Conquered the Hill" will be the latest athletic fashion trend in Bentonville. The Bentonville Half Marathon is Saturday, April 2, 2016, and all finishers will receive a half-zip top emblazoned with this phrase across the back shoulders.
The Bentonville Half Marathon is a premier running event in the Northwest Arkansas area. The 13 mile loop takes runners past Orchard's Park, the old Fairgrounds, Bark Park, and finally: up the Crystal Bridges Trail Hill. This hill is more than a bit of a bump on any run, and definitely a challenge to surmount after running for 12 miles! The Finish Line is located at the downtown Bentonville Square, and festivities will be going on all morning.
THRIVE is proud to sponsor clients who are inspired to achieve challenges like this. If you're not already planning on running this day, we hope you'll join us in downtown Bentonville to cheer on Sheldon Tucker, our THRIVE 2016 Half Marathoner! Sheldon is a client at THRIVE, and leads amazing spin classes at local FreeRide Studio.
