Event Description

This one's for the girls! The Chocolate & Diamonds 5k for Ladies will be held in Russellville, Arkansas, on Saturday, May 4, 2024. While it will serve as the Runnersville Ladies Training Camp graduation event, registration is open to all females. We are excited that for many of our registrants, this will be their very first 5k.

The race includes fun music, chipped race timing, delicious chocolate, a race shirt, a finisher's medal, supportive coaches on the route, a water station, and the coolest group of female racers in one place, so don't miss out. NOTE: We will place our final order for race shirts early on Thursday, April 25. To be guaranteed a race shirt in your desired size, we encourage you to sign up for the race by midnight on Wednesday, April 24. We will order extra shirts for those who register after that date, but we will have to guesstimate what sizes we need.

We have top finisher and age group awards for both walkers and runners in the Runnersville division (Runnersville participants) and the Open division (those who are not participating in the Runnersville Ladies Training Camp). Remember, if you sign up as a walker, you cannot run even one step or you can be disqualified. If you sign up as a runner, you can run or walk. 

This is a stroller-friendly race. If you will be pushing a child in a stroller during the race, we ask that you line up on the right side of the starting chute and stay to the right until the racers begin to spread out.

Unauthorized walkers / runners ("bandits"), bicycles, roller skates, skate boards, scooters, hoverboards and pets are not allowed on the race course with the exception of Coach Sophie, our Wonder Girl therapy dog.

We encourage you to register by Saturday, April 27, 2024, for the best pricing. Spots are limited.

Our starting line is on West E Street in Russellville, near the intersection of North El Paso Avenue. The route turns left onto El Paso, goes around the Arkansas Tech University Campus (via West L Street, North Glenwood, West R Street, Coliseum Drive, and West O Street), and then back down El Paso to West E Street where it all began.

Note that there is also a virtual option, but race packets will be only be mailed by request and at the expense of the race registrant. Virtual participants can complete the 5k between May 13 and May 27, 2024. 

Packet pickup will be held at Feltners Athlete's Corner (2320 West Main in Russellville) from 3 to 6 pm on Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3. Participants from Russellville, Dardanelle, London, Dover, Pottsville, Atkins, and other nearby communities are asked to please pick up your packets at this time. To avoid long lines, race-day packet pickup is reserved for those traveling to the race from outside our area. Race-day packet pickup will be held near the race start/finish line.
