Welcome to Outback in the Ozarks! It’s the overnight running relay that will challenge you in the spirit of teamwork and fun with your family and friends. We are Northwest Arkansas’ most exciting and beautiful race! Our race begins in Historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and winds through 200 miles of the stunningly scenic “Ozark Outback” finishing up near vibrant Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Think of us as a high-speed walkabout through the best that Mother Nature has to offer. From panoramic mountain vistas and rolling valleys, to winding rivers, lush National Forests and 5 scenic State Parks, Outback in the Ozarks will take you to another land down under full of fun and adventure!
Whether you’re a novice or an elite runner, Outback in the Ozarks has something for you. Each standard team consists of 8-12 runners running 3 legs each. Legs vary from 2 to 8 miles of diverse terrain. There is also an ultra team division made up of 4-6 member teams. The end result is 200 miles covered over two days and one night, ending with bands and a fresh grilled feast on the barbie.
