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.

If coming North from Poteau, you will see this sign about eight miles from Pashubee.  Follow 259 here toward Broken Bow.  We've had some people go straight here.  It can be a little confusing.

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.
