Hot Springs On The GO!
Chilly evenings at high school football games, cozy sweaters and scarves, and bonfires with friends are just a few of the perks of fall. But oftentimes it's the fall comfort food and overindulgences that can put us on the wrong foot going into the holidays.
Hot Springs has always been a place of comfort, healing and health. Combine that with the love of a good festival or event, and one will find that our city also knows how to stay fit while having fun.
On Oct. 31, zombies will be taking over Cedar Glades Park for the benefit of United Way of Garland County. Human runners will get a two-minute head start and be given three flags to wear, which the zombie runners will try to capture from them. When a runner loses all three of their flags, they then become a zombie and join in trying to turn the other runners into zombies. Registration is $30 and runners can register as humans or zombies. Zombie face paint will be done by Hot Springs Beauty College for $5 per person.
The newly rebranded Spa Running Festival will feature the 10K and 5K from years past, but has added the new Summit(2) Challenge Half Marathon to the mix. The half marathon has garnered the attention of runners from Oklahoma, Texas and Florida and is sure to be a hit for years to come.

Why wait until the new year? There's no better time than the present to get started on those resolutions.
