Description: Overview Oklahoma’s Oldest Trail Run!! The race was started in 1999 by Earl Blewett. Earl saw the beauty of Lake McMurtry with its gorgeous scenery, soft, beginner friendly trail system, spectacular lake views, and reputation for having some of the best trails in the state of Oklahoma for running as well as mountain biking. In 2009 Earl turned the race over to the Tatur organization and its race director Ken Childress. Ken did a fantastic job of keeping the quality, history and tradition of the Lake McMurtry Trail Race alive. The Outlaw group began directing the run in 2019 who added their own flair, while keeping the tradition alive with the same great trails and entertaining aid stations. Outlaw Trail Series Complete all 5 trail runs in the Outlaw Trail Series (Outlaw, Lake McMurtry, Flower Moon, Dark and Dirty, and Thunderbird) in a calendar year and receive a cool plaque to recognize your achievement. Distance is not a factor (in other words, you can run the 5K or the 135mile). Virtual options do exist that allow runners to complete the series even if they are unable to attend an event in person. An Oklahoma shaped plaque with times and distances for all races engraved and hooks to hang the medals will make a nice Christmas arrival next year. Course Description A variety of distances to choose from with offerings of 100K, 50K, 25K, 12K and 5K on single track, winding through the pines and along the shores of Lake McMurtry. This is a moderately difficult course, great for beginners and seasoned trail runners alike. The courses consist of a loop on the west side of the lake with the longer races utilizing an out and back to the east side of the lake as well. The 50K has about 1,500 feet of gain. The 100K comprises the 50K course twice. Please see the course maps in the pictures above or at our website (gpx files also available) at
