Triathlons are for all ages, all fitness levels. The TRIFEST for MS features three triathlon distances as well as a kids triathlon, modified for kids ages 5-8 and again for kids ages 9-14. Register as an individual or as part of a relay team. Either way, the community of Bentonville will cheer you to the finish line.

Reminder: Online registration is closed. You can still register in person during our packet pick-up hours. There will be no same day registration for any tri events, though you can sign-up race day, on site for the Research Run 5k. 



Proceeds benefit the UAMS MS research department. Our fundraising goal is $50,000.

We use IMathlete to process registration. Click any “register” button to be connected, so you can sign up. There is no same day registration for any tri distances. The only event that will accommodate same day registration is the Research Run 5k. You can register for a tri distance in person the day prior to the event (at packet pick-up) but not the same day as the event.
