Saturday October 6th – 40k RR @ estimated 2:00pm.   NOTE:  (as of Sep 20)   THIS IS A PENDING ROUTE and start time as it may be moved to be at Two Rivers Park, to have all 4 races at same S/F line over the 3 days of racing .  Stay tuned for updates on this route.     40k Race is planned to be in western Little Rock area, on Denny Rd.  S/F will be at Chenal Elementary School at 21201 Denny Road Little Rock, AR 72223.   This 40k course will be rolling, with like 4 small-ish climbs on each of the 2 laps, with several fun rollers along the way, and a really fun steady (not steep) downhill section under the trees for almost 2 miles on Kanis Rd, and a gradual climb back to the finish line.    This is an 11.5 mile loop we will do TWICE (23 miles), and so….. in order to get 25 miles the race will start out by going west on Denny Rd and go down one mile and then do a u-turn around a cone and then head back east on Denny (passing S/F line, with 2 laps to go).
