The Eurekan

The Eurekan

Will you be named "The Eurekean"? My out-of-shape butt won't, but I like the idea of the bike tour.

Eureka Springs to host new multisport festival

“The Eurekan,” a new multisport event, will take place Aug. 12-14 in Eureka Springs.

The festival will include a sprint-distance triathlon on Friday, road bike tour rides and races on Saturday and running races on Sunday. Any participant who can complete the triathlon, a 100-mile ride and 10K run will be crowned as “The Eurekan.”

Athletes can choose to participate in any of the events separately or they can sign up for The Eurekan challenge.
