Lyon College to add Trail Race to Scottish Festival Activities

The Arkansas Scottish Festival is a 3-day event, established in 1981. This event brings in thousands of spectators from across the country to the campus of Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas. The event this year will take place on Saturday and Sunday April 8th-9th. This year with help from the Lyon Education and Adventure Program (L.E.A.P) they are adding several different trail racing events to raise money towards maintaining Lyon College’s Trail System.
