AM start, Big Fork Community Center
Creek “fun” run; both events are out-and-back courses utilizing the
Athens-Big Fork trail.
Presented by the
Southwest Arkansas Striders
entry fee, however, a donation of $5 per runner is encouraged to support the Big
Fork Community Center, which is opened for the event.
This event is NOT for trail-newbies.
If you are not an
experienced trail- or ultra-runner (or adventure racer), we happily invite you to one of the other UTS runs, BUT NOT THIS ONE. This is
a difficult event on a difficult trail that presents many opportunities for one
to get lost, injured, exhausted, or incapacitated--with sparse access for rescue.
Please do not be enticed into trying this run because of the difficulty warning--it is merely an honest attempt at preventing the run organizers from having to find and rescue someone ill-equipped for the event.
A cut-off time of
3-hours will be enforced at the turn-around (half-way) point for the 17-mile run.
Runners reaching that point after three hours must turn around (--NOT
proceed on the marathon course).
you cannot find the Big Fork Community Center without further
instructions--please disregard this race.
