General Info

Finally a race that any of you can win!!!!   Yes that's right, even the slowest spud out there has a good chance of coming in first place at this race.  How you ask? 

Here's how. The kicker is that every participant will be stripped of their watches, phones, iPods, Garmins, sundials, and any other device that could be used to tell time with.  By then, you will have submitted the time that you think it will take you to run the eight or four mile course. For example, you may think that you can usually maintain a 12 minute/mile pace for eight miles, so you would write down 96 minutes and 16 seconds (bathroom break). 

The winner will be the one whose actual finishing time is closest to their estim8ed finishing time. Your time may be faster or slower than the estim8ed time.

All participants will wear their estim8ed finshing times on their backs. We will then send you off and the winner will be the one whose finishing time is closest to their predicted time.  As you pass or get passed, try not to let this influence your pace, or then again, maybe you should let this influence your pace.

There will be a two hour (15:00/mile pace) for the 8 mile option. If you are worried about making that time limit please consider the 4 Mile Half Estim8ur. The NON Awards Ceremony will begin at 9:00 am. sharp.

Course Description

The race will be eight miles or four miles (measured by a Garmin 205) but you will not know the course till race morning. TOP SECRET !!! We can tell you that you will not be able to run it as fast as you can a normal road race.

This race will be eight miles or 4 miles on a course that you will not know until race time.  It may have some road, some grass, some park trails, some single track dirt trails, scenic vistas.

While trail shoes will help you, they are not neccesary. If you were one of those lucky ones who got into the first two Estim8urs in 2008 and 2009, this course will be similar in difficulty.

Bring the kids, spouse and even the leashed dog. We are still looking for more sponsors to help off set the costs of the permits, insurance, and aid staion food. Please email brian@tatur.org if you know of anyone who may like to sponsor this race.

Entry fee will include a technical fabric short sleeve shirt and aid station food. Fee is $25 payable to TATUR. Any proceeds from this race will go toward trail improvements around the Tulsa Area. There will also be a donations jar if you would like to help TATUR upkeep and expand our wonderful trail system. We are putting on this race with minimal sponsors, therefore, we are sorry to say there will be no awards, fanfare, frills, or whining. Just some old fashioned fun. Limited to the first 220 people to sign up!!!

Contact Brian Hoover at brian@tatur.org or 918-244-6918 for more information.
