The host of the Athens Big Fork Trail Marathon and Blaylock Creek 17 mile Fun Run is the Big Fork Community Center. There is no fee to this run, we only ask for a donation to the Community Center. This run is actually one of their biggest fund raisers of the year. We usually donate about $200. Mr. Hayward opens up and makes sure everything is ready for the runners. He has a hot wood stove, and hot coffee for everyone. The Ouachita Amateur Radio Association provides communications for us because cell phones and other radios will not work. So please, please show the community your appreciation and donate what you can to their community center.|
Thank you very much.
