Stay tuned for the announcement of the

2019 Cow Paddy Run.

Thank you so much for making the 2018 Cow Paddy Run such a success!

The Cow Paddy Run is comprised of a 5K and 1K Fun Run at Gulley Park in Fayetteville, Arkansas hosted by The Spark Foundation, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to create a positive impact in our community by providing increased access to health and fitness opportunities while supporting academic excellence. Proceeds support innovative educational projects in schools through direct giving, our keystone endowment with the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation, and Spark’s outreach programming.
