"It was time to mix it up and give our runners a new challenge. There are hills and inclines that should bump up the difficulty of the race a bit, but still allow for runners of all levels to participate in Tulsa's favorite run."Race officials also announced this year's charity information, naming Tulsa Boys Home the primary beneficiary of the race and A New Leaf, CAP Tulsa Literacy Program, Life Senior Services, Parent Child Center and Salvation Army general beneficiaries.
