Team Loco started in late 2011 as a few of us that ran super early in the morning began to discuss goals for 2012. We all seemed to agree that 1000 miles in a year was a good goal. We didnít really put a name to it until closer to the end of the year when Dave Whittenberg came up with the name Team Loco. This happened when all four of the Loco Founders were on a run together and we agreed it was a great name. The first four are Belinda Winner-Jared, Jeremy McBride, Dave Whittenberg and David Edwards. We all managed to reach our goal that year and Team Loco was off to the races. We started a Facebook page and grew from that first four to over 410 members on our Facebook page today.
As far as how the race itself got started, we had always harbored the idea of a race, but never actually started one until last year when several of us were sitting in the lobby of a hotel in Memphis the morning of what turned out to be a canceled St Jude Marathon. Several Locos had planned to qualify for either Marathon Maniacs or Half Fanatics in Memphis and it seemed a shame to let the hard work of the previous races go to waste, so we banded together and put together what was a very low key, no frills race. Even though we had to take the race to the Tucker Creek trail in Conway due to time constraints it seemed to go well with runners so keep it there.
This year's race will be on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 8am.  The race will be held at the Tucker Creek Trail starting at the Salem Road Park. The 2017 Half Marathon is officially SOLD OUT, but there are still spots in the Marathon available.  Click on the link below to sign up.

Additions to the race this year include chip timing, Virtual option for the Half and Full, and a fundraising campaign for the Conway Police Department to help them purchase winter gear.  There is a fundraising tab on the registration page, an option for additional donation during registration, and there will also be a donation option at the event itself.
