The CatSmacker 20 Mile Fun Run will take runners 19.86 miles through the Ouachita National Forest. There will be 1,486ish feet of elevation gain. Runners will be going up and down North Fork Pinnacle and Flatside Pinnacle. Views from both of these peaks are selfie worthy . Most of the course is on fire service roads (think gravel), a couple of miles on single track, and a couple of miles of pavement.
The Kitty Tickler 12 Mile Fun Run shares the first section and back section with the Catsmacker but includes a shortcut via the Ouachtia Trail. Kitty runners will still get to enjoy the views from North Fork Pinnacle. They will be going 11.31 miles with 871 ft of elevation.
