Endure The Gauntlet 2018

Endure The Gauntlet is a 48 hour charity run being conducted by Conquer The Gauntlet Pro Evan Perperis at Conquer The Gauntlet Tulsa the weekend of August 24-26 in 2018. Evan will be “running” for all 48 hours but he wants you to join him for a lap or two or more in order to raise money for the charity Folds of Honor.



Event Location: Post Oak Lodge

     5323 W 31st Street N

     Tulsa, OK 74127

Evan’s Start Time: Friday 1130 AM, August 24, 2018

Evan’s Finish Time: Sunday 1130 AM, August 26, 2018

Participants register for a time block and walk/jog a lap (or more) with Evan on the course of Conquer The Gauntlet Tulsa moving at his pace. This is a non-timed event and 100% of your registration costs go directly to charity. All finishers get a finisher medal and a t-shirt after they finish their lap (or laps). For those that are ambitious and like endurance you are allowed to run as many laps as you want with Evan throughout the course of the weekend (minus normal Conquer The Gauntlet race hours, which require a separate registration).

The goal of Endure The Gauntlet is three fold:

1) Raise $5000 for the charity Folds of Honor. Folds of Honor provides scholarship money for children whose parents were killed or wounded in action in US Military service.

2) Raise awareness and create additional publicity for the sport of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) through OCR specific and local media channels.

3) A personal challenge.
