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 smoothe 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.
