The Backyard Bonanza will give you a taste of everything that Turkey Mountain has to offer – smooth runnable trails, rocky technical trails, hills, maybe more hills, wooded areas, savanna grasslands, and the Herman & Kate YMCA.

If you have run the Turkey and TATURs race in past you will definitely appreciate this course.

Turkey Mountain is an “Urban Wilderness Area”. You will find beautiful lush surroundings that run alongside the Arkansas River. As you approach from the north, you will be able to see it’s peak that juts 300 feet above the Arkansas River. Elevation is between 600-900 ft. above sea level. Ninety percent of the course is on narrow single-track trails.

Most of the trails are under a a canopy of deciduous tress and amidst a thick layer of vegetation The trails have the sand /gravel /rock surface common to this area and can easily be run on after hard rains. The course has varying degrees of difficulty. There are easy-going non-technical areas, mostly flat and thoroughly negotiable, and there are intense, highly difficult technical areas with short, hard and very rocky climbs.
