Whether you want to pound the pavement or do it in the dirt, this event is for you. Athletes have their choice of a 24, 12 or 6-hour race on either a relatively flat asphalt trail or on a technical trail with dirt, rocks, roots, tree branches and depending on the weather, maybe a little mud. Each measured trail distance will be multiplied by the total number of laps a runner completes to give total mileage, for that event. A competitive 1-hour run is offered on the pavement course, and a non-competitive fun-run is staged on the off-road course.
Mark your calendars for October 19, 2019. See you at the starting line!
The 24 The Hard Way race in Ok City presented a perfect setting for me to break into the world of 6 hour racing. There is no way I would have hit my goal pace without the extreme generosity of the volunteers, the top notch organization of race logistics, and the stellar location. I would highly recommend either the road or the trail to any fellow ultrarunner! -- Christine Tokarz
