Arkansas weather in October can be unpredictable. The average high temperature for race weekend is mid-70’s and the average low is in the low 50’s, but wide variances can occur. It has rained; it has hailed. Don't be without a hat and emergency poncho or garbage bag.
Expect darkness to come at 6:30-7:00 pm and dawn around 6:30-6:45 am. Flashlights and extra batteries are essential during the nighttime. Those anticipating a 28-30 hour pace should either place a flashlight in a drop-bag at Club Flamingo or be prepared by already carrying a light.
