Event Details

The Central Arkansas Library System and the North Little Rock Public Library System have partnered to create the Rock, Paper, Run 5K to celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month. This family fun run/walk 5K will connect the two library systems beginning in North Little Rock, leaving from the steps of the William F. Laman Library, 2801 Orange Street, and ending at the Main Library, 100 Rock Street, Little Rock. Following the race, a Library Card Sign-up Cool Down party will take place at Library Square. Runners and spectators are encouraged to dress up as their favorite book characters.

Trolley service will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. providing free rides between Laman Library and Main Library for anyone who has parked at the race start and needs transportation back to their vehicle. 

Pre-orders for shirts ends August 18. A limited number of shirts and registrations will be available the day of the event.

Packet Pick up will be at the William F. Laman Library. Date and times of pickup will be announced soon.

Race timing services will be provided by Agee Race Timing using their advanced RFID chip timing system. Chips will be attached to your shoes or each hip. Please be prepared to wear bib front facing on your torso area.

Chip Instructions: 
For accurate timing and race results follow these instructions:

  • Tags should hang freely off the outside of EACH shoe on shoelaces. They should not be tucked inside the shoe or under the laces.
  • If shoes don’t untie, pin the plastic tags on the bottom edge of your shorts on each hip (on your side) below the shirt line.
  • Before you leave the event please place both shoe tags in the plastic tub near the finish line so that we can recycle and reuse the shoe tags.

All participants will receive a 3D printed medal featuring our Rock Paper Run 5k logo. 

Award information coming soon.
