Run in the footsteps of actual OUTLAWS!! The Outlaw course is located in the Robbers Cave State Park near Wilburton, Oklahoma. Robbers Cave State Park (established in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps) is associated with OUTLAW names like Jesse James, Belle Star, and the Youngers. The Park consists of 8,246 acres of scenic views with bluffs overlooking three large lakes, rock formations, and caves to be “enjoyed” as you navigate the mainly single track, forested, technical terrain with an abundance of rocks and roots. This is a USATF sanctioned event. The Outlaw 135
There has been increased interest in the longer distances, especially the 200 mile races. This is a nice intermediate to test yourself and develop strategies for those longer runs. The Outlaw 135 mile course is made up of the 100 mile course with the bonus of the 7 mile loop an additional 5 times. This allows runners to be monitored more closely by the start/finish aid station late in the race and concentrate volunteers. Same Saturday morning start time as the 100 mile with a 48 hour cutoff (see cutoffs in section below). We do allow drop downs to still get a 100 mile buckle or longest distance completed as in all our runs (but not qualify for place). The 135 mile has about 21,000 feet of gain.
The Outlaw 100 course consists of a large 13 mile southern loop and a smaller 7 mile northern loop. Together, these loops comprise a unique 20 mile segment that must be completed 5 times.It includes two awesome aid stations manned by experienced Ultra-runners alternating with water stops. The 100 mile course has about 15,000 feet of gain and is over 95% single track. In terms of difficulty, which is subjective, this race might be characterized as intermediate/difficult. The course has very technical terrain with a lot of rocks and moderate gain (but is at an altitude of about 1,000 feet). It is not a rails-to-trails or gravel road thus the lengthy (albeit) generous cutoffs. As in all long courses, water crossings (defined as you MUST get your feet wet) are possible depending on rainfall prior to the race (especially at 1.25 miles and 9 miles). In the event of significant rainfall, course variations are preplanned and possible.
