POOP (Protect Our Oklahoma Parks) Trail Run is a 1/2 marathon, 5.5 mile, and 2.5 mile trail event on Saturday December 2nd at the Clear Bay Trails of Lake Thunderbird State Park.

All proceeds will go to the Oklahoma State Parks Foundation to help maintain the state parks we use and love!

Oklahoma State Parks are in a budget CRISIS!  In March, a proposal to close 16 parks was put forward because of the massive cuts in state funding. Read the News Story!

This trail event is to raise money for Oklahoma State Parks, raise awareness of the budget crisis, and celebrate the public lands we enjoy!
