Check here every Tuesday for a fitness fix rundown. I’ll be
on the lookout for running, cycling, tri’s, adventure races, and other active
outlets taking place around the state that I’ll highlight each week. This week:
Arkansas Traveler 100
The Arkansas Traveler 100 is an epic 100-mile endurance race
through the Ouachita National Forest. The race has been a landmark and favorite in the ultra
running community for years and the first race was held in 1991. This year the race will
be October 2-3. So far, around 100
runners are registered to take on the challenging course.
Ouachita, which is around 30 miles west of Little Rock and
adjacent to the Lake Sylvia recreation area. Camp Ouachita was a Girl
Scout camp built in the 1930’s and is the only surviving G.S. camp built
jointly by the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress
Administration. If you want to check out the race or by chance run it click here for more details.
