The race will start at Springhill and pass through Magnolia, the site of the Barnett #1 oil well. The Magnolia Oil Field was an important discovery, not just for the city but for the nation, as it was the largest producing field during the early years of World War II. Next up is another oil boomtown named El Dorado. Runners will see a more rural part of Arkansas as they pass through Crossett before reaching border at the Mississippi River. Along the way, runners will visit local schools.

This is part of the Race Across USA marathon series. You will be running with the Core Team who are going coast to coast from California to Washington DC. Runners need to arrive the night before at 5pm to check-in.
