Fayetteville Half Marathon


Join our volunteer team at the Eureka Springs Multisport Festival! Without our past and future volunteers our events would not flourish and grow. Each volunteer is a crucial and valuable member of our team!

The Eureka Springs Multisport Festival - "The Eurekan" - will be held Aug 11, 12 and 13, 2017. This three day multisport festival consists of a sprint-distance triathlon on Friday afternoon, road bike tour rides (Gran Fondo) on Saturday and a 5K, 10K and fun run on Sunday morning. Athletes can also compete in the "Eurekan" and Half Eurekan challenges by completing the triathlon, the 100 or 58-mile bike ride and the 10k or 5K run (all are timed events).
Volunteering at “The Eurekan” is both fun and rewarding – giving back to your community, helping athletes strive for their personal best, and enjoying all the action racing offers! Our volunteers come from all aspects of life and we have opportunities for all.

  • Do you want to watch the racers fly around corners, while keeping them safe and on course?
  • Do you like talking to people?
  • Are you quick and can multitask?

  • Due to the nature of our races we have needs all across Carroll Co and beyond...from downtown Eureka Springs and Holiday Island over to Berryille, past Green Forest and up into southern Missouri! Volunteers are needed each day. Our shifts typically are 4 hours long but we can accommodate most schedules. If you like to volunteer for a full day or a few hours we would love for you to join our team!
