The fifth annual TATUR Midnight Madness 50 Mile Road Race is a celebration of health and
fitness that will challenge runners to take their physical and mental fitness to the next level.
We invite you to come to Tulsa Oklahoma and participate in the state's premiere fifty mile race. This unique race starts at 11:59 p.m. in Tulsa's newly revamped River Parks Trail System.
The course is mostly pancake flat and fast, yet even night time temperatures in Oklahoma routinely hit 85° and can feature high humidity. The course consists of five -10.3 mile loops in alternating directions.
If you have done a marathon before, this would be a fantastic "first time" ultramarathon since the generous cut-off time of 15 hours allows an entrant to finish as long as he/she can maintain an 18 min/mile pace.
