Death by 5k

Death by 5k is coming BACK to N. Little Rock!

RunStrong Event's signature 24 hour challenge, Death by 5k requires participants to run ten 5ks starting every 2.5 hours. The first 5k starts at 8 am, and subsequent 5ks start at 1030, 1, 330, 6, 830, 11, 130, 4, and 630 am. Participants need to be present at the start of each 5k, and have that 5k finished prior to the start of the subsequent 5k. This challenge is designed to test participants mentally and physically with physical fatigue, sleep deprivation, and running in the dark. (Headlamps, hand lights, or some other form of illumination will be required)

Due to the restoration work being done after the tornado damage, the exact location of the race hq and the 5k route may be changed for safety. Tentatively, as in the inaugural race in 2022, Death by 5k N. Little Rock will start and finish at the rugby field at the Burns Park soccer complex, and will be run on paved paths in the park (white oak trail), and including the Arkansas River Trail. Race hq will be at the rugby field. This is where food and drinks will be available.

In between each 5k, participants will be able to sleep in their cars, or to put up tents in the grass of the rugby field. There is plenty of space for pop up or camping tents. Parking will be in the soccer field parking lots across Tournament Drive from race hq

There will be 5 meals, each including hot food, served over the course of the event. Meal times will be 830a, 130p, 630p, 1130p, and 420a. There will also be plenty of snack food and drinks available throughout the event. You will not go hungry or thirsty at a RunStrong Event.

Participants will receive an event shirt, along with Death by 5k swag (Bag, coozie, sticker, cup). Finishers will receive one of our coveted coffin awards with some surprise swag inside.

Registration will be limited initially to 125 participants. After that, a waitlist will be enabled and we will open spots if/when they become available or if we decide to expand the field.
