Welcome to Switchback Endurance


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 5k’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 a beautiful sunny winter day this year for the fifth anniversary Yankee Springs Winter Challenge! We had the best turnout yet. Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who make it happen!

Registration is open for the sixth annual Yankee Springs Trail Run weekend, June 3-5, 2016. Once again we’re offering 10k, half marathon, full marathon, and double marathon races. Now for those of you who’ve been asking for a 100 miler, we’re giving you 100 miles plus! This year we’re adding a quad marathon, 104.8 miles, 8 laps of the half marathon course!

Registration is now open for the Dirty Burg. The date Saturday, July 16, 2016. Races will again be 5k, 10k, 20k, and 50k.

New this year is the Switchback Endurance Fall Festival at Yankee Springs, in the works for October 22 and 23. We plan to offer races of various distances on Saturday and may even bring back the Off-road Triathlon on Sunday!
