The POSTOAKLodge Challenge Trail 50K, 25K, 10K is not a walk in the park, these are trails in the woods and it is not for the faint at heart. This is The POSTOAK Lodge Challenge. The trails are a combination of less than a mile of existing gravel roads, old farm roads, a couple of chat trails, and miles and miles of single track trail winding through meadows and deep woods. As hard as we have tried there is no avoiding the hills of Osage County. It is a beautiful course with a little bit of everything. There are rocky areas, creek crossings, and a good chance of mud on the trail, but for the most part it is the hills that will give you the best workout. For this reason we have raised the difficulty rating to eight (out of ten). If you plan to run this one fast then you need to train for hills, lots of hills.

The POSTOAKLodge Challenge Trail Marathon, Half Marathon, and Quarter Marathon will be run on very similar trails as the Saturday except the Sunday events will have much more old farm road sections mixed in. The road sections will be either logging road, old wagon trails, or gravel. The trail section will be single track trails for the most part with a couple of chat trails, and miles and miles of trail winding through meadows and deep woods. As hard as we have tried there is no avoiding the hills of Osage County. It is a beautiful course with a little bit of everything. There are rocky areas, creek crossings, and a good chance of mud on the trail, but for the most part it is the Hill From Hell that will give you the best workout. Because we eliminated Holmes Peak and added more road sections we have lowered the difficulty rating to six (out of ten) for all of the Sunday races. If you plan to run this one fast then you need to train for hills, lots of hills. You will all finish by running up the world famous "HILL FROM HELL". Welcome to The POSTOAK Lodge Challenge!
