Switchback Endurance is a small local organization providing trail races in West Michigan. Race directors Kim Owens and Phil Stapert are passionate about putting on the kinds of races we ourselves would like to run.
In this difficult time we are sincerely concerned about the health and safety of our runners and are following the recommendations of the CDC and the State of Michigan. We had to cancel the “in person Yankee Springs Trail Run, and we offered the YSTR Quarantine Edition virtual race as an alternative. Results from the virtual race are posted on Ultrasignup. Registration is already open for the 2021 Yankee Springs Trail Run, as we hope to be back at Yankee for another weekend of trail running and festivities! At this point we are planning to go ahead with the Dirty Burg at Cannonsburg Ski Area on July 11 with some changes to help keep us all safer. We hope to be able to continue with plans for the rest of this year’s races, and we’ll keep you informed as the situation develops.
