First Day 5K Fun Run



First Day 5K Fun Run

5k, 10k, Half marathon, Marathon


Kick off the new year the healthy way and join thousands across the nation who will be hitting the trails for First Day hikes, walks, jogs, rides, and runs! Join park staff and visitors at DeGray Lake Resort State Park for a fun 5K run along a mixed surface course split evenly between trail and road. For the goal-oriented folks out there, we issue the "2019 Challenge" - complete the course in under 20 minutes 19 seconds!

Enjoy beautiful views of nature in winter as you traverse two of the park's five trails through mixed pine forest and along the shoreline of scenic DeGray Lake, one of Arkansas's five diamond lakes. After the race, gather with your friends and fellow runners around a post-race campfire and enjoy some hot beverages and fellowship. Why not go ahead and make your New Year's resolution early by making plans to join the 2019 First Day 5K Fun Run and 2019 Challenge at DeGray Lake Resort State Park!

No registration necessary. Meet at the state park lodge for starting line briefing around 1:45 p.m.
