Due to the need for social distancing surrounding the COVID-19 situation, many of the events listed on our calendar have been canceled or had the dates changed. We are not currently taking down events as we haven’t received any definitives from most event organizers. WE RECOMMEND that you contact the race director or organizer before registering for any event in the next couple of months. We will attempt to keep you informed as we get more information. Thanks.

Iron Pig Duathlon
A USA Triathlon sanctioned duathlon that consists of a 3 mile run, 18 mile bike and 3 mile run.
Iron Pig Run/Walk
5K Run and a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk which are both held on the same course. The flattest course you’ll ever run/walk on!
Iron Pig Time Trial
USA Cycling sanctioned 17 mile bike time trial. Known as the “race of truth”, cyclists can test themselves against the clock. Several categories with a non-aero equipment category as well. Come set a course record or test yourself against the times of the duathlon competitors.
THE COURSES:The run courses are flat and fast! The bike course is out and back on Scenic Hwy 71. The finish is located just in front of the airport terminal. This course is geared to people looking for a challenge, but is not too hilly for an early season test. A good first-time event for an individual or team or a great way to kickoff the race season for the seasoned athlete.
Toad Suck Daze Run will use chip timing technology to calculate results. Participants must wear a race chip to get an official race time. Race chip and packet pickup will be Friday, May 1, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Conway Regional Health and Fitness Center in Conway. Race packets will also be available on race day from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. at Conway High School Fieldhouse. Registrants after 7:30 a.m. will not be timed.
All registrants will receive a technical t-shirt with the Toad Suck Daze Run logo. Additional shirts are available for purchase for $15.00 each. Shirts are available in adult Mens and Womens sizes S – XXL. Youth sized shirts will be provided for all Tadpole Trot participants. These youth sized shirts are a 50/50 cotton blend and run small, so please order accordingly. Additional youth shirts are available for purchase for $10.00 each.
*Shirt sizes not guaranteed for packets picked up after 7:00 a.m. on race day.
10K and 5K runners should line up based on their pace. All 5K fun walk participants should line up behind the 10K and 5K runners (back of the pack). Runners should expect a wave start, based on pace.
WHAT IS THE EUREKA SPRINGS MULTISPORT FESTIVAL?
A three-day multisport festival consisting of a sprint-distance triathlon on Friday afternoon, Gran Fondos (road bike rides) on Saturday morning and running races on Sunday. Participants can enter individual events or take one of two “Eurekan” challenges.
WHAT IS “THE EUREKAN”?
The name not only is the moniker of the event, but also refers to participants who complete the ultimate challenge! Any participant who enters the “Full Eurekan” who can complete the triathlon, 100 mile ride and 10K run will be known as “The Eurekan”! There is also a Half Eurekan competition which is the triathlon, 62 mile bike ride and 5K run.
The triathlon is located on Holiday Island, just a few minutes from downtown Eureka Springs. The finish line for the biking and running events are the same place each day which is located in the heart of Eureka Springs on historic Main Street in front of the Eureka Springs City Courthouse.
