“As the leaves and waters fall, I must rise to the occasion.

The Razorback Running Revival takes advantage of the natural beauty and splendor provided by the famed Ozark Highlands Trail, the Shores Lake Loop in the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest, and the trails associated with beautiful Lake Fort Smith State Park. All races feature trails with sweeping views of Lake Fort Smith, and the stunning relief of the Ozark’s Boston Mountains. The ultra distances take advantage of the Ozark Highlands Trail, one of the most scenic long distance hiking trails in North America. With peak foliage of the autumn season, the many stunning waterfalls, and the drastic changes in relief along the way, this race promises an opportunity for discovering Human Potential through the experience these mountains speak into us. It wouldn’t be an HPRS race without the invitation to embrace and overcome adversity, while working through self introspection amongst the dramatic setting of these storied hills.
