Reuel Little Classic Celebrating

The Reuel Little Classic will be celebrating 25 years on Saturday, Oct. 7, with the 2017 edition. The annual run will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday in William Ray Memorial Park and will include a half marathon, a 10K run, a 5K run, and a one mile fun run walk.

The annual event has not only been a showcase for running in Madill over the last 25 years, but also a fundraiser benefiting the Marshall County Hospital Foundation Doctor-Recruitment Fund. Madill Attorney Dan Little, the son of the race’s namesake, Reuel Little, said the race was started back when Madill was about to lose its hospital and was having difficulty keeping doctors.

“This is in support of the hospital, and in its efforts to recruit doctors,” Little said. The race will normally bring in about $5,000 to $6,000 for the recruitment fund.
