The Cow Paddy Run is comprised of a 5K and 1K Fun Run at Gulley Park in Fayetteville, AR hosted by The Spark Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit that was created with a mission to positively impact our community by providing increased access to health and fitness opportunities. Proceeds support innovative educational projects in schools through the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation as well as our Foundation’s youth and community programming.
