All four runs are loops within the 30,000 acre Oklahoma owned and managed Sandy Sanders Wildlife Management Area. The Trails are mostly graded ranch roads through canyonlands of a maximum of about 220 feet from creek to mesa tops. The 25k is one loop from the headquarters south and back, and the 50k is two loops, and the 50 mile is three loops.
All four run routes begin and end at the DoWackaDo North HQ.

The Pumpkin Holler 100 Mile, 100K, 50K, 25K, and 10 Mile races will take part in the beautiful J.T. Nickel Preserve. The largest privately protected conservation area in the Ozark, the Nickel Preserve is a 17,000-acre remote area northeast of Tahlequah, Ok, and runs alongside the scenic Illinois River. The preserve was formed in 2000 as the result of a land gift from the John Nickel Family. The course consists of gravel country roads with a few nice climbs. It is home to grassy prairies, oaks and pines, and an extensive system of tributaries feeding the Illinois River to the south. The tree covered trail will be bursting with yellows, and reds and browns as the trees are just beginning to turn colors and show off their magnificent fall foliage.

The RunnersWorld Tulsa Half and Half Marathon allows you to run a half marathon on the Turkey Mountain trails or a half marathon on paved pedestrian trails. All races will be going at the same time for some fast-paced finish line action.
Every finisher receives a unique medal for each half completed. These medals connect together to form a Taijitu - the symbol for Yin Yang. Together the medals represent a balance between running on trails and pavement.
The races start and finish at the Turkey Mountain main (lower) parking lot located at 6850 S. Elwood Ave. The Trail Half Marathon is an out and back course with a turn around at the Westide YMCA. The Paved Half Marathon is entirely on the Riverparks paved trail system. There is a nine hour time limit for all races. All courses will be marked with pink ribbons and signs.
