Welcome to Switchback Endurance!


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 don’t swim well? Would you like to try adventure racing but without the map and compass? The Yankee Springs Off-road Triathlon offers a cool alternative: kayak, mountain bike, and trail run.

In order to avoid conflicts with other races we are changing the date of the Off-road Triathlon to October 11. With the change of date we also have to change the location. This year it’s going to be at Ionia State Park. We’ll provide more details as they get worked out.

Registration is now open for the 2015 Yankee Springs Winter Challenge! This has been a popular race and may fill up, so don’t wait too long to sign up.

dates for upcoming races:
Ionia Off-road Triathlon: October 11, 2014
Yankee Springs Winter Challenge: January 3, 2015
Yankee Springs Trail Run weekend: May 29-31, 2015
