Welcome to Switchback Endurance!


Switchback Endurance is a small local organization providing trail races in West Michigan. Race directors Kim Owens and Phil Stapert are passionate about putting on the kinds of races we ourselves would like to run.

In this difficult time we are sincerely concerned about the health and safety of our runners and are following the recommendations of the CDC and the State of Michigan. We have decided to cancel the “in person Yankee Springs Trail Run and offer the YSTR Quarantine Edition virtual race as an alternative. We hope to be able to continue with plans for the rest of this year’s races, but we’ll keep you informed as the situation develops.


Switchback Endurance is also partnering with Trails to Hope to put on The Corona Run, a virtual race supporting Kids’ Food Basket. For more information and to sign up, click here:
