Ankles of Steel…Iron Will.  That’s what you’ll need to take on the LOViT challenge – an endurance run of rocky, rolling hills and ridge lines that will take you along the southern rim of one of America’s most pristine fresh water lakes and through the ruggedly beautiful Ouachita National Forest.

Participants in both events will receive an event shirt and the experience of a supported run through the Ouachita Mountains with 6 manned aid stations on the 100k course and 10 manned aid stations on the 100 mile course – many that you will cross multiple times.  100k finishers will receive a medal and 100 Mile finishers a custom finisher’s buckle to commemorate their accomplishment. Participants in both events will enjoy additional event swag plus one comped breakfast buffet during Sunday’s awards brunch.

Three Days of Syllamo @ Blanchard Springs

Three Days of Syllamo @ Blanchard Springs

Three Days of Syllamo annual gathering at Blanchard Springs in the middle of March is old school trailrunning at it’s purest. The event was created by Steve Kirk in 2005 and has become a yearly pilgrimage to the Ozarks for many adventure seekers, reuniting for a weekend of challenging races, fellowship and the opportunity to become one of the SYLLAMOPEOPLE!

Over the course of three days, runners will experience the Sylamore, Syllamo and Ozark Highlands Trails. Winding, climbing and descending through the rugged Sylamore Ranger District including several creek crossings, past scenic vistas and bluffs and through dense forest
