The Great Duck Race 10K
2009 Grand Prix Race #20
Stuttgart, AR - November 28, 2009 - 8:00 AM
The Great Duck Race 10K has been run in Stuttgart during the Wings Over the Prarie Festival for over 25 years. This year is the first time that the race has been part of the Grand Prix Series since 2005.
The Great Duck Race begins in downtown Stuttgart on Main Street. The course heads due south on Main for approximately 1.25 miles then turns left onto 22nd Street. After nearly 3/4ths of a mile, the race turns right onto Park Ave and soon passes the 2 mile marker. The course continues south for a mile and then turns right onto Lennox Rd where runners soon pass the half way point of the race. The stretch on Lennox Rd is also approximately a mile, after which the course turns right onto Buerkle St where the route travels north for another mile before a right turn back onto 22nd St. On 22nd Street, it's just a third of a mile back to Main Street where the course heads back 1.25 miles north to the finish line. Virtually no uphill or downhill makes this course Arkansas' flattest 10K.
