Welcome to the Ouachita Switchbacks 50K and 25K.
UPDATE - WE ARE ADDING A TEN MILE DISTANCE AS WELL. THIS WILL BE A POINT TO POINT COURSE. YOU WILL GET TO RUN THE HEART OF THE SWITCHBACKS BUT RATHER THAN TURN AROUND WITH THE 25K AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN, YOU WILL PROCEED 1.2 MILES DOWN THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN TO THE BACKPACKERS CAMP PARKING LOT. WE WILL THEN SHUTTLE YOU TO THE FINISH. This option is available because each year we have a number of people who like to have that option anyway and others that just do not feel ready to do the entire 25+K.
The race is set for January 18th, 2020. Registration opens October 1st.
50K COURSE FOR 2020 IS THE SAME AS 2018 and 2019. Hopefully there will not be a blizzard at the start of the race this year but if there is we will have fun like last year.
The race will begin and end from the Pashubee Trailhead located near Big Cedar, Oklahoma.
We are very much looking forward to our fifth running of the Ouachita Switchbacks. It is going to be great fun. The race continues to grow every year and every one has a great time. Please let me know if you have questions or comments.
