Cotter Bridge Ultra

Formerly known as the Arkansas Backyard Ultra Championship, we present you the Cotter Bridge Ultra.
A one of a kind event that blends our previous format with a unique concept.


Big Springs Park in Cotter Arkansas

This is a great event for the family. There's fishing, swimming, a rope swing, and playground at the venue.


This is a timed event with a twist.

At 7am, all runners start a 4.1667 mile lap. All runners have 59 minutes and 59 seconds to finish the lap.
At 8am, all runners start lap #2.... and so forth.

On lap #6, all 6 Hour runners will be racing for time. All 6 hour finishers will have finish time of 5:XX:XX [h:mm:ss] that determines his or her respective place.

Runners competing in 12 or 24 hours will continue until their respective race.

6 Hours = 25 Miles

12 Hours = 50 Miles

24 Hours = 100 Miles


Cotter is a premier vacation destination in North Central Arkansas. There are dozens of scenic campgrounds and several historic vacation rentals within a mile of the venue.


This course is a 2.08 mile out then back. It is a mostly flat, soft surface, 8 to 10 feet wide, mostly fine gravel. It follows the White River. There are no turns or opportunities to get lost. It is scenic and a fantastic opportunity to go sub-24 hours on a 100 mile distance.
