The Arkansas High Country Race will begin at daybreak on June 8 at the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge in Little Rock. The race will finish at the same location. This is a solo, self-supported race. The new route will officially be released by the Adventure Cycling Association in May. The Arkansas Parks and Recreation Foundation provided a $100,000 grant to aid in project. Riders will be able to purchace waterproof maps and/or digital versions for phones and GPS units. Both versions will detail locations of stores, restaurants, campgrounds, bike shops and much more. The host organization for the race is the River Valley Ozark Off Road Cyclist club of Russellville. There will be no entry fee, but racers will be able to make a donation to the club.
