Death by 5k

Death by 5k is coming to Tulsa!

RunStrong Event's signature 24 hour challenge, Death by 5k requires participants to run ten 5ks starting every 2.5 hours, for 24 hours. The first 5k starts at 8 am, and subsequent 5ks start at 1030, 1, 330, 6, 830, 11, 130, 4, and 630 am. Participants need to be present at the start of each 5k, and have that 5k finished prior to the start of the subsequent 5k. This challenge is designed to test participants mentally and physically with physical fatigue, sleep deprivation, and running in the dark. (Headlamps, hand lights, or some other form of illumination will be required)

Death by 5k Tulsa will start and finish at River West Festival Park, and will be run on the paved river trail, including crossing the river twice.

In between each 5k, participants will be able to sleep in their cars, or to put up tents in the grass area at River West Festival Park. There is plenty of space for pop up or camping tents.

There will be hot food available after each 5k, along with plenty of snack food and drinks throughout the event. You will not go hungry or thirsty at a RunStrong Event.

Participants will receive an event shirt and some additional swag. Finishers will receive one of our coveted coffin awards and the pride that comes with surviving.

Registration will be limited initially to 200 participants. After that, a waitlist will be enabled and we will open spots if/when they become available or if we decide to expand the field.

Death by 5k takes place at various locations including:
Oak Mountain SP in Alabama
Runstrong HQ in Brandon, MS
Shelby Farms Park in Memphis
Burns Park in Little Rock, AR
Adventures Unlimited in Milton, FL
George Wyth SP in Waterloo, IA
and more sites coming soon!
