Race History


The inaugural CASA Half Marathon was in 2011. Since then, the event has almost quadrupled in size. 2014 marks the first year the CASA Half Marathon will be a part of the Arkansas RRCA; we are very excited to be a part of the series. We look forward to meeting new people and making new running friends.

Course Description

Our course is nothing short of fast. This flat course is an out and back that stretches through UAPB's campus, past Saracen Landing, past the Delta Rivers Nature Center, through the Land of Lights Display in Regional Park, in front of the Harbor Oaks Golf course and back, ending in the parking lot of the UAPB Golden Lion stadium.

The address of UAPB is 1200 University, Pine Bluff, AR. You will drive past the school to the stadium which is on the left just past Oliver Road. Parking is in the stadium parking lot.
