  • THEY'RE OFF: Top runners at the start of the Little Rock Marathon. Slower-paced runners had gotten a head start long before.

The 2014 Little Rock Marathon is in progress in misting rain and temperatures dropping by the minute. But on they go. Brian Chilson has lots of photos at the start at this link.

UPDATE: The elite runners, along with many others,  finished the course but advancing bad weather forced the closure of a portion of the course around 12:30, with those still on the course allowed to finish or re-routed to the finish. Mark Chepses won the men's division with a time of 2:25:42 and Leah Thorvilson led the women with 2:42:41.
