5K @ the LPGA Benefiting Mercy

Saturday, September 25, 2021 at 7:30 AM

Railyard Live Pavilion, Rogers, AR

The 5k @ the LPGA returns on Saturday, September 25th in a new location – Downtown Rogers! The race will start and finish in front of the Railyard Live Pavilion and loop through the historic streets of Downtown Rogers. Join us as we Run for Good in the biggest and most spirited 5k race in NW Arkansas benefitting Mercy Health Foundation.

Health & Safety: We are actively monitoring the current Covid-19 situation with the help of state + local officials and will communicate any updates on our Tournament website (https://www.nwachampionship.com/) and via email.


Participants will be encouraged to wear face coverings while in the starting corral before the race and again after finishing the race. In order to reduce contact, there will be no Hydration Stations on the course – participants are encouraged to bring their own water bottles for the race. Hand sanitizer will also be available throughout the Pavilion for participants to use before and after the race. Social distancing is encouraged at all times.


Virtual participation will also be offered for those who would prefer not to attend the in-person race. Participants are able to complete a 5k on their own during Tournament Week (September 20-26) and receive an official race packet + medal at the Packet Pick Up on Friday, September 24 between 2pm-6pm. All proceeds from virtual participation entry fees will also benefit the Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas.


Race Package: Includes a performance t-shirt, daily #NWAChampionship Tournament ticket, race medal, breakfast after the race and more! Packet pickup will be held on Friday, September 24th at the Rogers Convention Center from 2pm-6pm. Packets can also be picked up on Race Day starting at 6:30am.
