Race History

2016 will be the 40th Running of the Hogeye Marathon which means a couple special features this year. All marathon finishers get a jacket and Bill Rodgers will be a special guest of the marathon.

Pre-2003, the race course traveled from Fayetteville to Hogeye, Arkansas, and back. This was an overwelmingly hilly route, and the race was considered one of the ten toughest marathon courses in the country at that time. In 2003, the course was brought completely into the city of Fayetteville and in the following years more and more of the route began utilizing Fayetteville's burgeoning trail system. These changes have flattened the course tremendously from the old days, though the race is still considered a "hilly marathon" by most participants.
