Get set for the 2021 Eurekan! Eureka Springs’ annual, 3-day multisport festival is back after last year’s unavoidable hiatus. This year’s festival promises a triathlon, bike races, a 5k, a 10k, and more! July 23rd through the 25th, 2021 in Eureka Springs, AR.
Looking for a way to shake off all the dust and cobwebs from last year’s social distancing and staycationing? How about participating in the 2021 Eurekan?
The annual festival offers a variety of physical challenges to choose from. Registered participants may enter any event they choose or go whole hog and attempt them all to achieve the Full Eurekan.
What’s a Full Eurekan?
Well, first you accomplish the Triathlon (300 yard swim, 6.25 mile bike, 2 mile run), then add in the 100 mile bike race and the 10K. Too much? Maybe the Half Eurekan is a better fit. It also includes the full Triathlon but only adds the 62 mile bike race and 5K run.
Of course, it is also completely acceptable to participate vicariously from the sidelines. Someone has to cheer these athletes on, after all!
Whether you choose to attend as a participant or spectator, 5 Ojo would love to be your home base. Most festival events are held or at least conclude in downtown Eureka Springs, just minutes from our historic, Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast, 5 Ojo.
Triathlon events take place 15 minutes north of Eureka Springs at Holiday Island, AR near Table Rock Lake. In fact, the swim portion of the Triathlon is held in Table Rock Lake.
The event ends with an Awards Ceremony and Video and Picture Recap of this year’s festival, which is always a lot of fun. All event participants who attend the ceremony receive door prizes.
