Every so often, Eureka Springs is invaded by uber-athletes. It’s about to happen again this weekend, August 12-14, 2011. The Eurekan is a three-day sport festival that includes a triathlon, bike rides, bike races, and runs. We’ll be wising everyone good speed and good knees from the comfort of our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast.
Any participant who successfully completes the triathlon, the century (100 mile) bike ride, and the 10K run will hereafter be called “The Eurekan”. Other rewards are more personal, such as the knowledge that you had the strength and courage to train and persevere.
There are other events for folks who enjoy sports but don’t enjoy punishment. If that sounds like you, consider doing the 20 or 58 mile bike rides. You’ll still have time (and energy) to admire the historic downtown area, with its many shops, galleries, and restaurants.
Eureka Springs is nestled in the Ozarks. It’s no surprise that athletes are willing to travel here to run, bike, and swim, because the beautiful setting is inspirational. Many guests of our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast enjoy some form of outdoor recreation while here, be it biking, hiking, or boating on vast Beaver Lake. We invite you to come see for yourself, whether you’re a triathlete or not.
