RACE FOR THE CURE
8 a.m., Second and Broadway. $25.

It's big and it's pink and it's coming this Saturday: The 15th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Little Rock. Nearly 27,000 women (in 757 teams and individually) will descend on Broadway before dawn to raise funds for breast cancer prevention and awareness by pounding the streets over a 5K route. Online registration is closed, but participants may still sign up for the race at the Race Space in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center (or starting at 6 a.m. race day) between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday; fee is $25. The Women's Run/Walk starts at 8 a.m.; the Family Fun Walk/Run starts at 8:20 a.m. On the eve of the race, there will be a pink duck walk at the Peabody Hotel at 5 p.m. and carbo-loading at the Pasta Party at the River Market pavilions from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The first 100 men at the Three Miles of Men tent at Third and Izard will get a free breakfast. A survivor parade and awards ceremony will be held after the race at 9:30 a.m., to be followed by the Survivor Luncheon. For more information, go to www.komenarkansas.org.
