Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
WHAT IS THE EUREKA SPRINGS MULTISPORT FESTIVAL?

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.
