If you want this finisher medal, be prepared, you'll have to earn it!

2017 Registration is open for all POSTOAK Lodge Challenge events!

Event registration will close as each event fills. Included in your registration is your unisex technical shirt. WE SUGGEST WOMEN ORDER A SIZE DOWN. YOU WILL RECEIVE THE SIZE SHIRT YOU ORDER. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.

These races are all tough. We would rate the Friday races at 5 out of 10, with 10 being the most difficult. Saturday races at a 7 or 8 difficulty level with 10 being the most difficult. The Sunday races would be rates at 6 out of 10. We can only rate the trail runs up against other trail races we have experiencedd. Mountain races are tougher because of altitude, summer races are tougher because of the heat. We compare these trails to other trail runs we have run in comparable weather around Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. This comparison is only for runners who have never run the POSTOAK Lodge Challenge, so you know this is not a walk in the park on a nice, smooth, chat trail with public restrooms and fresh water every mile. The question you must ask yourself is, "AM I UP FOR THE POSTOAK LODGE CHALLENGE?".

Bring trail shoes and plan to run on trails with roots, rocks, trees, water crossings, anything and everything you would expect to find in the woods. Did I mention the hills? This is Osage County, Oklahoma, I don't believe there is a flat place out there. ARE YOU STILL UP FOR THE POSTOAK LODGE CHALLENGE?
