Switchback Endurance brings you the finest trail races in West Michigan. We are passionate about helping you explore your limits and find your adventure. We love the woods, we love adventures, and we love being around people who share our love of the outdoors. From 10k’s to ultras, we want to bring you trail races that test your body, mind, and soul while you enjoy the beauty and surprises mother nature has provided.
Our fourth annual Yankee Springs Trail Run is in the books. Congratulations to all our finishers, especially those crazy runners that raced all three days! Results are available at Ultrasignup.
We had some good competition and a lot of fun at the 3rd edition of the Dirty Burg. Check out the results here.
Would you like to do a triathlon but without the swimming? Would you like to try adventure racing but without the map and compass?

We have duathlon and relay options, as well as a 10k for those who just want to run! Click here for more info. Registration is open!
