Race Into the New Year 5K is the "BEST" running New Years party!
River West Festival Park at 2100 S. Jackson, Tulsa.
We are going to race tonight! Online registration will stay open until 8PM and we encourage you to sign up by then so you don't have to stand in line tonight at the event.

There is ample parking at RiverWest Festival in the main parking lot. You can only access the parking lot from 21st St and turn north on Jackson even if it says "Road closed" It is a night-time race and will be a little dark in some areas. You are allowed to wear a headlamp if you have one.
The start/finish line is the same location at River West Park. The 5K will do an out and back around the River between West and east side and you will be able to see the fireworks from most areas on the course at the stroke of midnight! Turn around water stop will be located midway on the 5K. Finishers medals will be handed out at the 5K finish line. In order to keep up with the New years tradition, we will still give you black eyed peas and cornbread (to bring good luck to next year) cookies and drinks!
Covid rules and mandates will apply to this years event. We cannot have the big tent due to social distancing rules. We will still make sure that you still have a true New Years race experience with all the usual things and ring in the the New Year running" style!
There will still be awards, just no awards ceremony,unless the weather is exceptionally nice and we don't mind hanging out after the race. If not the awards will be picked up at RunnersWorld Tulsa.
We will more than likely do some heats for the start to keep the crowds spread out. We will make that decision as it gets closer to race day.
