This will be my fourth year participating in the event, but in case this is your first time, I wanted to give you a heads up of what to expect.
Here's a quick rundown of what this blog is about:
- The Expo
- The Costumes
- Th Weather
- The Course
- The Pacers
The expo runs Thursday from 4pm to 8pm and Friday from 8am to 8pm.
This expo is a smaller expo. There are a handful of vendors there but mostly the main purpose is to pick up your bib, timing chip, and tech shirt.

I've seen a group of ladies dressed up as Mini Mouses, The Flintstones, The Addams Family, super heroes, and tons more.
I'm planning on taking a rain poncho or a trash bag to wear. I've never invested in a nice running rain jacket. Times like these it makes me wish I had, but oh well. Trash bag lady it is!
We know the course will be hilly as a lot of Tulsa is.
On the course the RD has ensured that they won't run out of water by utilizing a new water distribution system. Also for the first time since I've been running the race, they are going to have electrolytes on the course in the form of Gatorade. (See pic below)
At the finish line, we'll collect our medals and a prepackaged box of post-race snacks.
