XTERRA Eureka Springs
.5 mile swim / 14.5 mile bike / 5.1 mile run

XTERRA Eureka Springs is one of the most challenging races on the XTERRA America Tour and may be raced individually or as a two or three person relay team.

The half mile swim will be in spring fed Lake Leatherwood. The bike leg will be two laps of a 7.25 mile loop over the Miners Rock, Overlook and Fuller trails consisting on 95% single track ranging from smooth hard pack to technical rocky sections. The run will be contested over sections of the Twin Knobs trails and around Lake Leatherwood on the Beecham and Fuller trails.

***There will be a 3 hour cut off time for the Swim/Bike legs. Anyone finishing the bike leg after 3 hours will not be permitted to start the Run. If you do not feel confident that you can complete the Swim/Bike in under three hours, please consider racing the XTERRA Eureka Springs Sport.***

XTERRA Eureka Springs Sport
.5 mile swim / 7.25 mile bike / 3.6 mile run

XTERRA Eureka Springs Sport is a new addition to the event weekend and is intended for those looking to experience XTERRA for the first time or just want to have the same fun on a less demanding course. The XTERRA Eureka Springs Sport event may only be raced individually.

The half mile swim will be in spring fed Lake Leatherwood. The bike leg will be one lap of the same 7.25 mile loop as the points race, over the Miners Rock, Overlook and Fuller trails consisting on 95% single track ranging from smooth hard pack to technical rocky sections. The run will be contested on the Beecham and Fuller trails around historic Lake Leatherwood.

The XTERRA Eureka Springs Sport race will not award XTERRA America Tour Series points.
