2016 RACE

The Ouachita Switchbacks 50K/25K is a go again this year.  It will be January 16th, 2016.  Please scroll down below the results for information regarding the race.  Due to the growth of the race and the need for a permit and insurance, we will have online registration and an entry fee this year.  We will try to keep the fee as minimum as possible and it will be lower than just about any other 50k/25k race out there.  Expect between $50 and $60.  I should have the registration page up and running within the next several weeks.

2015 Results

Wow!  What a great year and great weather!  We had approximately 143 finishers.  I thought we had 151 but somehow we had seven or eight that didn't record a time or did not sign up.  Thanks for coming and please let me know about any errors as I'm sure there are numerous ones.

2014 Results

What a great year it was!  The weather was great although a little windy and cold on top of Winding Stair Mountain and it warmed up a little bit for the 50K runners coming back from Kiamichi River.  Hard to believe that it was that warm for January.  We had 78 people start the race and 71 of those completed at least!  Twenty-six signed up for the 50K and but 11 elected to call it a day after the first 18.4 miles and once back at Pashubee Trailhead.

We had great food and a nice little party going at the finish line!  See you next year!

Location



The race is located in the Ouachita National Forest near Big Cedar, Oklahoma.  Big Cedar is an intersection where highways 259 and 63 meet but there is not really a town there.  Talihina, OK is located 25 miles to the west and Mena, AR is located 35 miles to the east and Heavener, OK is located 25 miles to the north.  Poteau is 40 miles to the north.  All of these towns have hotels and restaraunts.

Some of us will be camping at the race start.  There are primitive sites available there.  No electricity, no water, no porta-potties, no nothing.  But lots of fun.

There are no stores in Big Cedar and there will be no restroom facilities at the race site.  It is a primitive location without electricity and so be prepared.

The race itself is located two miles north of Big Cedar on Hwy 259 and then 4 miles East on a forest road.  There is a big sign on Hwy 59 that says - Pashubee Trailhead.
