March in okarche
Duathlon State Championship
March 30th, 2019 11:00aM
We are back to race March in Okarche again! This is a fast, fast, fast, and mostly flat out-and-back 5Km run course on smooth roads with little traffic, followed by a scenic and undulating bike through the Oklahoma countryside. The roads have recently been resurfaced and so you can expect fast times and a smooth road.
New for 2019- We have added a short course option: Race will be 5k Run, 25k Bike, Finish. After the bike you will run 400m to the finish line! Your race does not stop when you rack your bike. You must go through to the finish!
Register before March 1st to be guaranteed the exclusive MIO Hoodie!
