The John E. Norman the Cinco de Mayo event is Fayetteville’s best kept secret road race, every year over 400 runners take part of this signature event and battle for cash prizes; the Cinco de Mayo family also like to bring climbing Walls for kids, face painter and color station and traditional folk dancing.
