A three-day multisport festival consisting of a sprint-distance triathlon on Friday afternoon, road bike rides (Gran Fondos) on Saturday morning and running races on Sunday. Participants can enter individual events or take one of two "Eurekan" challenges.
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 "The 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. The finish line is located in the heart of the city on historic Main Street in front of the Eureka Springs City Courthouse.
