Central Arkansas residents take top times in Little Rock Marathon

Two Central Arkansas natives are the fastest male and female, respectively, to finish the 2017 Little Rock Marathon.

The top male finisher is Adam Bradbury, a 31-year-old from Bryant. He finished the race in 2:45:43.63.

The top female finisher is Tia Stone, a repeat champion. The 38-year-old Searcy resident ran cross country at Harding. She works in professional development and teaching. Her time was 3:00:44.97.

Bradbury and Stone both had rain-soaked family members waiting for them at the finish line. The race began around 7:00 a.m.

"[I] just kept trying to stay on track with pace and I knew my family would be right here at the end so I just kept going," Stone said.

"I love this race so much. I have a lot of history with this one, just coming to watch with my husband and doing the half, then relay, and now the full. I just can't not do this race. I have to do it every year!"

The top hand-cyclist is Rick Weisbrod (2:26:36.65).
