We dare you to get out your running shoes during the dog days of Oklahoma.


Participate in the inaugural Sweat Hot Oklahoma Summer Trials (SHOST) in Nowata, Oklahoma, which is in the northeastern corner of the state. 5k, 6, and 12 hours options are available.

But, before you join us in July...

Have fun while showing your team spirit and Earth stewardship. Participate in cleaning up the course and running as many loops as you'd like on April 24. Run as many laps as you want on the SHOST course. Looking forward to seeing you during the Great American Cleanup weekend. We'll provide trash bags and gloves if you’d like to help with the cleanup.

After the run, we're firing up a grill to enjoy food & beverages.

SHOST Cleanup and Course Preview

Sunday, April 24th from 10:00 am-2:00 pm in Nowata at the High School Track, 700 W Osage Ave, Nowata, OK 74048

From race founder, Alex Gramblin:

You should hear "Jane" by Jefferson Starship when you sign up for this race. Well not actually. But think about the setting! July. Running shorts. An asphalt track. Small town vibes. Welcome to Nowata’s first 12 & 6 hour running event! Not ready for that distance? Try the 5K or FREE 1 mile fun run (shirt not included). We hope you’re ready to sweat. It’s sure to be a good time :)
