TULSA, Okla. — The Saint Francis Tulsa Tough is celebrating its 14th annual festival beginning June 7.
The three-day cycling festival returns for 2019 with a new, fitting theme: Tougher Together. The usual courses for the races along the Arkansas River will be used despite the recent devasting flooding and storm damage.
The festival once again offers events for amateurs, professionals, and non-competitive racers.
Kids races will be held at 2:05 p.m. on Saturday and at 1:10 p.m. on Sunday. The Townie race is a free, 5.8-mile course for all ages.
Tulsa Tough organizers originally announced changes coming to the River Parks Criterium (Cry Baby Hill) and all of the other courses.
Organizers took that back Monday and announced they would be using the original courses to run the races with the Start/Finish line on Riverside Drive.
They say they changed back after the River Parks Authority made repairs to ensure the safety of cyclists and spectators along the trails.
Despite the course changes, the weekend schedule is expected to remain the same.
