Don't miss Tulsa's Premier Trail Race!

This has been a busy fall season for racing, but this next Sunday there is a trail race right here in Tulsa that you should not miss. Turkey and TATURs is a 10K, 25K, and 50K right here on Turkey Mountain. This will be the 7th running ot T&T, and this is the trail race that started the trail running BOOM in Tulsa.
Beginning and ending at the Westside YMCA, the race uses most of the trails in Tulsa's urban wilderness, with the 25 and 50K making six passes north and south on the east mountain, and the winding pink trail on the west side. The 10K stays on the pink trail for their race. Since moving the race from mid-September to early November, hot temperatures are not a problem.

You'll run alongside the shore of beautiful Lake Logan early in the race.

There are a few technical sections of the trail, but there are many miles of very runable single track as well.

Feel free to bring your iPod. If you're in the 50K, you'll be glad to have it on your second lap.

The leaves are turning, and the color should be at it's peak this weekend.

Like wooden bridges? We got em.

TATUR is famous for awesome aid stations. They are well stocked, and you can graze til your heart's content. I recommend the Oreos with peanut butter and M&Ms.

You'll see Pepsi Lake early in your race, and the 50Kers will pass by again near the end of their race. At the finish line, BBQ and other yummy food awaits. Stay around and cheer your friends as they finish, tell stories of your best fall, worst blister, or wildlife sighting.

This year, we are doing nice tech-hats instead of shirts. You'll like em. Click here to sign up!!
