The Iron Pig Festival consists of four events:
IRON PIG DUATHLON: A USA Triathlon sanctioned duathlon that consists of a 3 mile run, 18 mile bike and 3 mile run.
IRON PIG RUN/WALKS: A 5K Run and a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk which are both held on the same course. The flattest course you'll ever run/walk on!
IRON PIG BIKE TIME TRIAL: A USA Cycling sanctioned 17 mile bike time trial. Known as the "race of truth", cyclists can test themselves against the clock. Several categories with a non-aero equipment category as well. Come set a course record or test yourself against the times of the duathlon competitors. New for 2017, the race is also a Junior Devo Race Series event.
THE COURSES: The run courses are flat and fast! The bike course is out and back on Scenic Hwy 71. The finish is located just in front of the airport terminal. This course is geared to people looking for a challenge, but is not too hilly for an early season test. A good first-time event for an individual or team or a great way to kickoff the race season for the seasoned athlete.
Start/Finish: 4500 South School Ave. (Fayetteville, AR)
Cost: Variable ($40-$70)
