Run in the footsteps of actual OUTLAWS!! The Outlaw course is located in the Robbers Cave State Park near Wilburton, Oklahoma. Robbers Cave State Park (established in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps) is associated with OUTLAW names like Jesse James, Belle Star, and the Youngers. The Park consists of 8,246 acres of scenic views with bluffs overlooking three large lakes, rock formations, and caves to be “enjoyed” as you navigate the mainly single track, forested, technical terrain with an abundance of rocks and roots.
We Have Awesome Sponsors!
The Outlaw 135
There has been increased interest in the longer distances, especially the 200 mile races. This is a nice intermediate to test yourself and develop strategies for those longer runs. The Outlaw 135 mile course is made up of the 100 mile course with the bonus of the 7 mile loop an additional 5 times. This allows runners to be monitored more closely by the start/finish aid station late in the race and concentrate volunteers. Same Saturday morning start time as the 100 mile with a 48 hour cutoff (see cutoffs in section below). We do allow drop downs to still get a 100 mile buckle or longest distance completed as in all our runs (but not qualify for place). The 135 mile has about 21,000 feet of gain.

The Outlaw 100
The Outlaw 100 course consists of a large 13 mile southern loop and a smaller 7 mile northern loop. Together, these loops comprise a unique 20 mile segment that must be completed 5 times.It includes two awesome aid stations manned by experienced Ultra-runners alternating with water stops. The 100 mile course has about 15,000 feet of gain and is over 95% single track. In terms of difficulty, which is subjective, this race might be characterized as intermediate/difficult. The course has very technical terrain with a lot of rocks and moderate gain (but is at an altitude of about 1,000 feet). It is not a rails-to-trails or gravel road thus the lengthy (albeit) generous cutoffs. As in all long courses, water crossings (defined as you MUST get your feet wet) are possible depending on rainfall prior to the race (especially at 1.25 miles and 9 miles). In the event of significant rainfall, course variations are preplanned and possible.

50 Mile, Marathon, and Half Marathon
The half marathon is a 13.1 mile loop. The marathon consists of two loops and the 50 mile consists of four loops (thus the 50 mile is about 52ish miles). Cutoffs for the 50 mile, marathon, and half marathon (all races aside from 135 and 100 miles) are 10Pm Sunday night. This gives 39.5 hours for the 50 mile and 14 hours for the Sunday half and full marathons.

Pacer/Crew/ Drop Bags
100 and 135 mile runners may have a pacer after 50 miles or when it starts to get dark. 50 mile runners may have a pacer when it starts to get dark if necessary. Crew and drop bags are allowed at Shorty’s Brothel and the start/finish. Pacers are allowed to join runners at the start/finish and at Shorty’s aid station at Deep Ford which you can drive to south 2.5 miles from the cave on Robbers Cave/Deep Ford road. Please label drop bags with name, race number, distance, and desired location. There will be tarps at the start/finish for drop bags. Bags will be taken to Shorty’s Brothel at 5:30am on race day. It is each runner’s responsibility to pick up their drop bags. Any drop bags remaining will be disposed of or donated.
We do allow drop downs to receive the medal for the longest distance completed (but not qualify for place).
We work hard on our swag because we know you work hard for our swag!!! A lot of races give the same buckles/awards every year. Thus runners who want to return to their favorite races due to the people, course, location, etc.… end up with several of the same awards. Some are fine with this while it leaves others unsatisfied. For this reason, the Outlaw has decided to make awards to be given based on the years of participation of the individual runner. This applies to the Outlaw run specifically and not our other races.
The rules of this policy are as follows: A runner will qualify for the next iteration of the award of the farthest distance they have completed in previous years.
1. Complete the 100 mile in year 1 – qualify for any award in year 2
2. Complete the 50 mile in year 1- qualify for all distances of 50 miles and below of year 2. Completion of the 100 mile in year 2 would still merit the 1st year buckle.3. Complete the marathon the first 2 years – qualify for all distances of marathon and below of year.
3. Distances of 50 miles and above would qualify for year 1 awards.
4. Complete the 135 in year 2 (first year offered)- qualify for any year 3 medal
5. Complete the 5K in year 2- receive year one medal and qualify for year 2 5K.
We believe this policy will allow runners to collect all our designs without repeating the exact same medal/buckle. It will be labor intensive with possibly/likely some sorting of confusion, but it will allow runners to have variety while also being monetarily feasible with less waste.
The start/finish and bunk houses are at Campground 2 on the north end of Robbers Cave Road just off Highway 2. There is some parking at the campground but overflow will be at Redbud Campground 1/8 mile below campground 2 and along Robbers Cave Road. Please do not park in areas with caution tape or directly in front of the start/finish line cabin (reserved for race personnel).
There are summer camp style bunkhouses available at only $10/night in ultrasignup under store. There will be male, female, coed, and family cabins. Please bring your own sleeping bags, sheets, pillows, etc. Some of the cabins are heated and we will bring heaters but it is not the Hilton ($10). The restrooms and showers are group facilities. Robbers Cave Cabins and the Belle Star hotel are available only a couple miles away and fill up fast on race weekend. Wilburton has local hotels and McAlester is the closest larger town. The Tulsa International Airport is the closest airport.
