Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival

The Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival was created to bring together three Northwest Arkansas cross-country races under a single event. The Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival is now one of the premier running events in America.

Each year over 80 college teams and 120 high school teams battle for prestige and unique Chile Pepper themed awards. Additionally, 750 individuals participate in the Open 10k and 5K Fun Run plus the Tom Lewis 1 Mile Pepper Dash on Friday Night. The event is held at University of Arkansas’ incredible off road course and all runners are invited to enjoy a Hot Mexican food feast following the race.

In 2018, we had another successful year with nearly 6,500 registered athletes. The funds we raised allowed us to support even more high school cross country programs. Your participation contributed to the donation of $75,000 to area High School and Jr. High Cross Country programs this year.
