August is historically when the second half of the Grand Prix season starts. With nine races still to go, the second half of the season is filled with classic races such as the White River 4 Mile Classic, the Hope Watermelon 5K, our own Ark 5K Classic, the Arkansas 20K and the Spa 10K.
The next Grand Prix race is the White River 4 Mile classic in Batesville on August 6th. This run is hilly and the hot August weather makes for a tough run.
The Watermelon 5k in Hope is the next weekend, August 13th. Stick around for the results and take home a free watermelon.
