Runners can register at EVENTBRITE or pick up forms at the LeFlore County DHS office at 511 S. Harper in Poteau and Latimer County DHS at 1809 Highway 270 East in Wilburton.
Registration is welcomed until the start of the race, but runners must pre-register by May 14 to guarantee a race shirt and finisher medal.
