Welcome to the Gong Show in
Cotter Arkansas!

The Arkansas Backyard Ultra Championship is held at

the Historic Big Springs Park in Cotter, Arkansas.

The flat & scenic out-and-back route follows an old railroad bed along the White River.

As a summer event, you cannot ask for a better venue.

The Big Springs Park treats runners and family to an array of recreational activities. There's a natural spring for swimming, a rope swing, sand volleyball, basketball, fishing, a playground, and dozens of scenic spots, all within the park!

For runners seeking to enjoy a family vacation, Cotter is nestled between Bull Shoals Lake, Norfork Lake, The White River, Norfork River, Buffalo River, and The Ozark National Forest.

It is perfect for those who love the outdoors.
