Did you ever play the driving game where you spot clouds that look like other things? Like you think a cloud looks like a horse and the person next to you thinks the same cloud looks like an elephant. While outside on a beautiful spring-like day I found a few bubbly clouds and started looking for ones that looked like animals. I spotted this cloud and to me it looks like a phoenix, rising from the ashes, renewed and regenerated. What do you see?

The phoenix may be the best mythical representation of spring in Oklahoma; when all the dead, crunchy, brown trees and grass begin to regenerate and bloom. In the spirit of reinvention how about trying a race this spring that is outside the standard 5K races. This March consider trying one of these races that offers and uncommon distance or location.

TATUR Snake Run

This unique race will be a six-hour or three-hour timed run taking place on mostly flat, nearly rock and root free, single track trails on the western side of Turkey mountain. The run will start Saturday, March 18th  at 9:00 am, and finish at 3:00 pm. The course will head northwest from the old upper parking lot following some of the trails used in the Turkey and Taturs race including of course the Snake Trail.  You will run 3.75-mile loops. How many laps can you run in three or six hours? It’s up to you.

OKC Dodgers  CommUNITY Run

Join the OKC Dodgers Baseball Foundation and the OKC Police Athletic League on March 25th for the OKC Dodgers CommUNITY Run. The one mile fun run and 5K will start at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and have a unique finish on the field. A special kids run will take place on the field at the ballpark. This event offers food trucks, kids activities and visits with various non-profits and partners of the run. Following the run, all runners and spectators are encouraged to attend the third annual OKC Dodgers First Look Fan Fest, which will take place inside the ballpark and is free for all attendees.

 

Draper Dirtroads

Close out March with OK Runner on the Draper Lake trails. With a 10K or 10 mile option, this scenic, character-building course is a perfect way to prep for whatever other events you have planned for the spring! And besides, how can you beat at a $5.00 entry fee?
