Escape from Turkey Mountain

Monday September 7th, 2020

Tulsa, OK

Official Website


One of Tulsa's oldest Trail races - dating way back to 2004!  A Labor Day tradition.  Two race distances to choose from - a challenging 5 mile course or the shorter and less technical 2 mile course.  Both races start and finish at the lower parking lot of Turkey Mountain. 

All entrants will receive a race t-shirt as well as a finisher medal for each race. 

Post race the tradition of this event is a cookout with hamburgers and hotdogs as well as beer for those 21 and over.   

One of northeastern Oklahoma’s unique recreational treasures, the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness encompasses over 300 acres of rugged park land located only a few miles from Tulsa’s vibrant downtown. Participants will be surrounded by a thick canopy of trees including native Post and Blackjack Oak, Hickory, Redbud and other species. This area of River Parks stretches north-south from I-44 to 71st Street, and from Elwood Avenue, east to the Arkansas River. The highest point on Turkey Mountain lies within the park’s boundaries, rising 300 feet above the river.

Escape is the THIRD (and final) race in our annual year long series of trail races at Turkey Mountain - called the "Turkey Triple".   Other races in the series include Trail Madness (March) and the Trail Nut 5k and 1 mile races (June),  Those in the series receive a 5% discount on each individual race entry fee, as well as a special medal for each race.    Registration for the series will close prior to the first race in March.  Sign up for the series and keep yourself motivated to train and trail race all year long!
