***Special Notice***

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.

Our calendar of events lists outdoor participatory sports throughout Arkansas. Feel free to search through the categories or tags. There is a lot happening so make your plans today. Please remember, these are not our events but a listing of Arkansas events that we share through Arkansas Outside.
