This unique race will be a six hour or three hour timed run taking place on mostly flat, rock and root free, single track trails on the western side of Turkey mountain. The run will start March 24th, 2012 at 9:00 am, and finish at either noon or 3:00 pm.
The course will head northwest from the old upper parking lot following some of the trails used in the Turkey and Taturs race, then north onto the Snake Trail. These are some of the smoothest and easiest trails on the "mountain". We also have taken great pains to remove all of the larger snakes from the course. Just kidding. Actually, the snake trail gets its name because it winds around like a snake, not because of an infestation of slithery reptile
You will run 2.1, and then return and run the trail in reverse to the start/finish area.
There will be two aid stations, one at the start finish area near the upper parking lot, and one at the turnaround. . First 250 entrants will receive a long sleeve technical fabric T-shirt with a vicious looking snake adorning the front. You also will receive a large medal that will have a front row row spot in your trophy case.
You can choose to run a very short out and back during the last hour for those not able to complete a full 4.2 mile out-and-back circuit. The winner is the one who after six or three hours covers the most miles. You can choose to run one circuit, then sleep for an hour and do another etc.
The entry fee is $45 for the six hour and $40 for the three hour race. Tatur members recieve a $5 discount and children 12 and under are free (shirt not included) They must register at RunnersWorld Tulsa. The entry fee includes the shirt, large medal, post race cookout and two awesome buffets of trail food and drinks.
