Race History

The Toad Suck 10K was started by the Conway Kiwanas club in 1982, and run in conjunction with the then new Toad Suck Daze Festival. They conducted the race mostly by themselves for several years. First National Bank (now Regions) began a race in 1984 in honor of a fellow employee who died of cancer. The Randy Baker 8K was conducted for two years, with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. In 1986 the Kiwanas sought help with the Toad Suck 10K, and the two races were combined. First National Bank/Regions Bank has been the primary sponsor of the race ever since, and each year “In Memory of Randy Baker” is featured on the race shirt.
