Woodland Heights to present 

Rock Runners


Woodland Heights Baptist Church of Conway will present the fifth season of Rock Runners. Welcoming walkers and runners of every age and pace, Rock Runners 2010 is a 13-week Bible study offered within 20 weeks of physical training preparing participants for events offered by the Little Rock Marathon. The study will feature "Buts" and Bellies Begone. Lessons on Being Fit and Faithful. 

Classes begin Sunday from 5:15-6:30 p.m. at Woodland Heights located at the corner of Prince and Hogan. Weekly group training events are organized on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Four years ago, 16 participants made up the first Rock Runners team. 

Last March, 61 Rock Runners crossed the finish line of their selected Little Rock Marathon events. Supported by an accountability group of their peers, physical training is based on a fitness schedule necessary to prepare a beginning walker or runner for the task of completing the 13.1 mile half-marathon, a 6.5 mile leg of the four person marathon relay, or the 3.1 mile 5K. 

Rock Runners 2010 begins this month and wraps up in Little Rock on Sunday morning March 7 with a post race cookout on the grounds of the Clinton Library once all participants have crossed the finish line and received their medals for completing their event. 

Classes and training are offered at no charge to Rock Runners team members. Race entry fees are the responsibility of the participant.
