Ratings & Reviews for the 3 Bridges Marathon

5 Stars from 2 Reviews

review of 2014 3 Bridges Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


It is a very well run, organized marathon. It is simple and scenic. Basically you run 10 miles out and back and add a 10K loop at the end. This is a good course for spectators as well. My husband and kids were able to cheer for me at 4 different locations.

Race Tips

This course is relatively flat with the exception of the three bridges (and you will go up and down each bridge twice). In 2013 temp was in the low 40's overcast the entire time.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Race begins at 7am so if you have a far drive you should stay in Little Rock.
