Ouachita Challenge Recap

By: Mountain Valley Spring

We had an action packed couple of days at the Ouachita Challenge in Oden, AR last weekend. Not only did we get to spend time in our gorgeous community, we got to hydrate and cheer on some truly amazing humans.

The Challenge dates back almost twenty years, the first official “Ouachita Challenge” being held in 2001. In a sentence, this unique, 60-mile gauntlet for mountain biking enthusiasts, is an opportunity for anyone who’s up for a serious test of their personal strength and determination. Also, each year around $25,000 of the Ouachita Challenge proceeds is split between the local organizations that help run the weekend-long event.

As the official water sponsor of a hometown event close to our heart, Mountain Valley Spring Water set up at strategic Race Aid stations and kept all participants, families, and volunteers hydrated on both trails. To us, it's not just handing out water; it's about propelling American values and helping people realize their successes. We were truly honored to have the privilege of helping sponsor such an inspiring event, especially knowing that it will benefit so many deserving organizations in our community.
