What : Tatur and RunnersWorld Tulsa proudly present the 4th Annual TATUR 5 Mile Poker Run.
When : Saturday, February 13th at 8am.
Where: Veterans Park (21st & Boulder)
Why: This is a fundraising event to help with the costs of organizing the TATURS Six Hour Snake Run on March 20, 2010.
How: This will be an out and back course. Entrants start this non-timed event with one poker card . Run/walk one mile get another
card, go two miles get your 3rd card, go to the 2.5 mile turnaround point and get card number four. Your fifth card will be at mile
three. Sixth card at mile four and your seventh card as you cross the finish line. Several area runners
will incorporate the Poker Run into their Saturday training run.
There is no clock, no results, no medals no whining and no cheating. Turn your cards into the volunteers who will help you sort your hand into your best five card poker hand if you need help.
Best hand gets first pick off of tables loaded with great running gear, race entries, gift certificates and other fabulous stuff courtesy of RunnerWorld Tulsa and TATUR as well as the Tulsa community donates prizes to the smorgasbord.
Second best hand gets the second pick off the table and so on. It is a ton of fun. If you, or someone cannot go a full five miles, volunteers will hand out extra cards at the finish of the race to make sure that those going shorter distances all receive a full hand of seven cards.
The awards ceromony will start at 9:15 A.M. which gives each participant 15 minutes/mile to finish. If you do not think you can go five miles in 75 minutes then you can simply turn early and get an extra card or two at the finish.
Cost: Since this is a fundraiser we are requiring a minimum $5 ante (Donation)
How Many: We are limiting this event to the first 300 entrants who sign up. Pre-Register by emailing RunnersWorld Tulsa or click here to register online.
Prizes: Each year we have lots of high quality technical running fabric gear (shirts, skirts, jackets, hats, etc) that we give away
to Poker Run winners. We will also have gift certificates, free race entries, and many other great give-aways. You will not believe
how much great stuff we have to give away.
If you, your company, or a race you are promoting, would like to donate ANYTHING (Gift Certificates, product samples,
giveaways, race entries, shirts etc.) please email us . We will certainly give you some free PR !!!!
