Holiday Hustle 5k & 10k - December 3 - 2016
Let's run! What better way to celebrate the holiday season than to enjoy physical activity and competition? The Holiday Hustle is an event for everyone from the elite athlete to first-time 5k-ers. With prize money for the elites, age group awards, and a legit 540-meter kid's run (ages 4-9), followed by a delicious pancake breakfast, this is an event the whole family will enjoy. Also enjoy live Christmas music and local high school mascots. Run a USATF certified 5k or 10k course that is very flat and fast.
This event is directed by Mark and Darci Thompson, who have helped make it a traditional festivity in the holiday season. "We want to support the sport of distance running in Central Oklahoma on every level. Races should be both competitive and loads of fun, and should be a celebration of hard work and the God-given ability to run."
New for 2016 – set a CPR, get a prize!
More details to come soon, but we are working up a bonus prize. If repeat runners beat their previous time (or time equivalent if switching distances), they will receive a prize.
Our course is a USATF Certified 5k loop which affords us the opportunity to have certified races for any 5k increment.
Super fast course!
The 5k course is a single loop that uses the brand new 2.5 mi Eagle Trail. The start/finish line is right in the heart of the Oklahoma Christian University campus.
*The Oklahoma Christian Cross Country and Track and Field teams work to put on this event, and are a beneficiary of the event's proceedsÂ along with the TeamOC Fitness and Wellness program.
