FORT SMITH — Good news: You've got plenty of time to start training for the first Fort Smith Marathon.

The Southwest Times Record reported that the inaugural 26.2-mile race will happen Feb. 8.

The course will begin and end downtown, winding through several city streets in between. The idea has been floating around for several years, but organizer Jeremy Smith said it has recently gained more support from city leaders and the mayor.

Marathon director Patrick Pendleton sad past races have gone well and helped lay the groundwork.

He said the course will emphasize the history and scenery of Fort Smith, using the theme of True Grit.
