Go get it. Do something you’ve never done before.

January has come and gone, but you've never been into new year's resolutions anyway. You've always wanted to do something new, something exciting, but searching out what that is takes time. 

Well, you've found it. A 6-week Triathlon. This activity has all the benefits of accomplishing something amazing while not having to torture your body through 14 hours of a grueling race in 1-day's time. 

Our facility can accommodate all of your miles.

There are plenty of options, and it's up to you to document your mileage, so we're not going to be looking over your shoulder to make sure you complete this. You can do it!

From February 1-March 11, you get to manually log your own miles to accomplish something you never have before. The best part: all competitors who complete the mileage get a finisher's t-shirt. 

You've still got time to sign up, but the longer you wait, the less time you have to finish your mileage. 

You can register in person at the reception desk, by phone at 479-756-8090, or online at http://tinyurl.com/gp9u5p7. Cost is only $10

Don't let the name of Speed Camp fool you - while there will definitely be attention paid to speed in running, most of the advantages of attending this sports camp are the basic knowledge of posture and process that leads to great agility and power in an athlete's ability. The Director of the camp, Dr. Mike Trexler, is a fitness and nutrition expert as well as a coach at the University of Arkansas.  

Two camps will be held the week of June 8 - 12:

  • Ages 8- 11 will meet at 10am through 11:20am
  • Ages 12 and above will meet from 11:30 through 1pm.  

The investment?  $50 for five days of training with a collegiate level coach.
