Course - Beautiful course along the Riverside paved trails and includes a trip up to scenic Turkey Mountain.

Flat & fast course - 100% paved running trail

The fifth annual Tatur's 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 50 mile race. This unique race starts at 11:59 p.m. in Tulsa's newly revamped River Parks Trail System.

The course is mostly flat and fast, yet even night time July temperatures in Oklahoma routinely hit 85° and can feature high humidity. The course consists of five, 10 mile out and backs (five miles out and five miles back)

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.
