Seriously, have you ever been anywhere NEAR the Race for the Cure on race day? Think Arkansas/Auburn game! lol Traffic is a nightmare! And this year instead of starting at the mall they're starting at Arvest Ballpark. Yeah....right down the road from the starting point of this ride! :?

I'm going to be walking the race in memory of my Grandmother, so I'll just flip you off! :lol:

I'm big, I'm bad, I'm Nationwide! :wink:

Are they going to be run/walking on 412? From the brochure, looks like the awards etc. starts at 9:20 for the Race. But I imagine like every other event out there, nothing is on time. :)

See ya there! If I do see ya, I'll honk the horn for your Grandma! 8)

It starts on "Watkins" then goes to 40th, West Oaklawn, then cuts on a street that I don't know what it is, then back to Watkins. So all around 412 basically..but how do you think everyone's getting there and getting out? :wink: 5k starts at 8am, Fun Run starts at 8:30, then the Celebration of Life awards start at 9:30, which is recognizing survivors. I've done this every year and I can say it's usually "really" over around 11. There are tons of vendors, entertainment, etc. People coming and going constantly from about 6:30am to about 11am for the various things going on.
