LITTLE ROCK – If your asphalt-weary running shoes are craving some new action, get off the beaten path in the 2015 4-H 5K set for April 11.

“This race is a great opportunity to hit the dirt, take in some great scenery with just the right number of elevation changes,” said Priscella Thomas-Scott, events coordinator for the Arkansas 4-H Program. “Outside of the course, the 4-H 5K is a great way to benefit one of the largest youth development programs in Arkansas.”
