POSTOAK Lodge Challenge Pre-Race Instructions 2021

Thank you for running The POSTOAK Lodge Challenge. We want you to have the very best trail running experience of your life, so please read all the information we have for you on this form and throughout our website.

1. Packet pickup and registration will be at Tulsa Runner, 9708 Riverside Parkway Tulsa, OK 74137, just North of the Creek Turnpike, from Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 10am until Friday at Noon. Packet pickup will reopen at the POSTOAK Lodge Friday February 26 at 5pm until 8pm, Saturday from 6am to 8pm, Sunday 6am until 9am.

2. We will have Pasta Dinners at the POSTOAK Lodge Friday and Saturday night at 6pm. At approximately 6:45, we will give last minute race instructions and have a question and answer time. Contact the POSTOAK Lodge for Pasta Dinner Tickets if the pasta dinner is not part of your room package. Their contact info is on our website. Their web site is www.postoaklodge.com

3. Please browse this website, and read all of it, especially the Q and A section.  There will be one start for each race. If you know you will be walking or running slow, please start at the back so there is no congestion. 

4. There will be a Drop Bag area for the Saturday, and Sunday 50k Ultra and 27.2m Marathon Ultra only at the finish line. There are Drop Boxes at all of the Aid Stations, these are meant for the 50k and Marathon. They will not be returned to the Lodge until 2PM. If you do drop clothing items in the drop box, please claim the items before you leave the POSTOAK Lodge.

5. There is a 7am early start for the 27.2m Marathon Ultra and 50k. All races will start in front of the POSTOAK Lodge. If you do the 7am start you will get a finish time and Medallion, but you will not qualify for any awards.

6. Aid Stations are every 2 to 3.5 miles each day, each Aid Station has a wide variety of food and drink items, first aid, and a Porta Potty.

7. You can drop clothing at any Aid Station but we do not recommend it and we do not take any responsibility for your items. The Aid Stations are sponsored by outside groups and organizations.

8. We do highly recommend Trail Running Shoes and Gators for all three days.

9. Please know what color of ribbon you are supposed to follow for your race. There are 6 different colors of ribbon on the course. It is your responsibility to know what color to follow. All 6 will be on the trails both days. The Saturday 10k is Pink, the 25k and 50k Ultra are marked with Green ribbon. he 5K Fun Run is marked with Red ribbon to the Horse Barn Aid Station. After that you will follow the Green and Pink ribbons to the finish line. The Sunday 27.2m Marathon Ultra and Heavy Half Marathon route will be marked with Blue ribbons. The Sunday Quarter Marathon will be marked with yellow ribbons. The Sunday 1/8th Marathon (3.3M) Fun Run will be marked with White tape to the Horse Barn Aid Station. After that you will follow the Blue and Yellow flags to the finish line. If you step over or go thru Caution Tape at any time on the trails, YOU ARE LOST. If you cut across a non-cleared area from one trail to another, YOU ARE LOST. If you look up and do not see your ribbon color, back up until you find it. You should be able to see your ribbon color from anywhere on the trail.

10. The best place for family and friends to see you Saturday and Sunday for the 5K Fun Run, 3,3M Fun Run, 10K, Quarter Marathon, 25k, 50k, Half, and 27.2m Marathon Ultra is from the front of the POSTOAK Lodge. The 25k is one loop and the 50k Ultra is two loops. The Quarter and Half Marathons are all one loop, and the 27.2m Marathon Ultra is two loops.

11. We will have food and drink for you inside the POSTOAK Lodge after you finish your race. You must have your Bib on to get the food and drink. Meals are not included for the two Fun Runs.

12. Do not leave the Lodge without checking with Wayne Webster to see if you have an award coming. We will not mail, ship, or deliver any awards. If you leave the Lodge without it, you will never see it. There will a limited Awards Ceremony for the top three male and female finishers in each race. For age group awards, as soon as the Awards results are printed, every 30 minutes after the first runner is in, you can pick up your award.
