FIBArk hosts several running races during the festival for all ages and abilities.
Tenderfoot Hill Climb:
This one-of-a-kind race is a signature kick-off to FIBArk events. Beginning at the corner of Sackett and F, 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 Road Races:
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.
10K Trail Run:
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.
