Triple Crown

Compete in all three of the FIBArk running races and contend for the Triple Crown title. The male and female competitor with the best combined time for all three events wins. Triple Crown competitors must run in the 10K on Saturday.

Hill Climb
This one-of-a-kind race is a signature kick-off to FIBArk events. Beginning at the stop light at 1st and F Streets, participants run and scramble straight up Tenderfoot (“S” Mountain) and back down. Believe it or not, the winners do it in less than 12 minutes! Prizes go to the top three male and female competitors, middle of the pack and the oldest runner. ALL participants qualify for bragging rights!

5k & 10k
Participate in the FIBArk road races Saturday morning and have all day to enjoy other FIBArk events! These two courses are on county roads, starting and finishing on the mesa near the County Courthouse. Awards will be given to the top three male and female competitors, as well as the top three male and female athletes in each category. We will also host a FREE Untimed kid’s one mile fun run at approximately 8:30am at Thonoff Park. You can register for the kid’s fun run online.


Trail Run
Join Salida Recreation on the last day of FIBArk for this fun and challenging race. The 10K trail run will take you behind Tenderfoot Mountain on the new Arkansas Hills Trail System. The terrain is varied, including dirt roads and single track. The trail run is also the final of the Triple Crown Competition. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers.
