LITTLE ROCK -

Organizers say less than 500 spots are open for the marathon. Registration is up 35 percent compared to last year.

The half marathon has less than 1,700 registrations available and is expected to be sold out by the middle of December.

In 2008, a registration cap was created for safety reasons. Race officials are getting ready for 13,000 participants and 30,000 spectators this year.

The 11th running of the Little Rock Marathon and other races such as the 5K and 10K   will be March 2 and 3. Money raised goes to Little Rock Parks & Recreation.

Registration is available online until midnight on February 22 or until the registration cap has been hit. To sign up for any of the races, click here.
