For those of you who do not know, a local Oklahoma ultra runner; Kelvin Reid; was recently diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
Kelvin is an awesome ultra runner &l ast year, had completed (5) 100 mile endurance runs.
Know No Boundaries is in the process of planning a ultra (likely a 50k) in Dewey, Oklahoma (near Bartlesville, OK) at a local attraction - Prairie Song.
Between the fabulous, hand built western town on close to 980 acres, and the neighboring property of close to 1500 acres, the rolling plains and sprawling vistas will make for a nice day’s run.
The plan is to have the event dependent solely on donations rather than charge for the event knowing that those who will run the event, will give from their hearts. The course should consist of approximately (3) 10+ mile loops and (3) aid stations.
We are also looking to have a totally GREEN event in that there will be no cups at the aid stations thereby eliminating the need to pick them up afterwards & to ensure that we can keep the property pristine.
If you just happened to be running with your “sweetheart” and get the inkling to “get hitched”, the Wildwood Chapel is right there on site.
For now, we are still in the planning stages, but stay tuned (here & on Facebook).
