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.
We had some good competition and a lot of fun at the 3rd edition of the Dirty Burg. Check out the results here.
A good time was had at the Yankee Springs Off-road triathlon. Results are posted on Ultrasignup.
Registration is now open for the Yankee Springs Winter Challenge on January 3, 2015. Distances will again be 10k, 25k, 50k, and 50 mile, and this year we’re adding a 10k snowshoe race. Don’t let predictions of a harsh winter scare you. Take it as a challenge! This has been a popular race and may fill up, so don’t wait too long to sign up.
The fifth annual Yankee Springs Trail Run Weekend is on the calendar for May 29-31, 2015. As in the last two years we will run the 10k Friday evening, the full and double marathons on Saturday, and the halk marathon on Sunday morning. Pending approval from the DNR we are considering adding a 100 miler! (Actually it would be a quad marathon, 104.8 miles, keeping with the half marathon loop, but what’s another 4.8 miles, right?) More details and registration will be available soon.
Watch our Facebook page for all the updates.
Looking for group training runs? We are partnering with West Michigan Trail Runners to host weekly training runs on a variety of local trails. For more information visit the WMTR Facebook page.
