Von Franken Food Run

  • RIVER WEST FESTIVAL PARK 2100 South Jackson Avenue Tulsa, OK, 74107 United States (map)

The Von Franken has been a Thanksgiving tradition in Tulsa for almost 40 years.  Started by five women with a spontaneous idea to combine a Thanksgiving morning run and donating food to those in need....and it stuck!

This annual event has no entry fee, just bring a bag of non-perishable food to donate to the Salvation Army and/or a bag of pet food (dogs and cats) for Sapulpa Furry Friends. 

Run/walk starts at 9am but get there early and catch up with friends! Stay after the run to win some awesome swag during the raffle. The best part? Tulsa Running Club cooks up hundreds of pancakes for everyone to enjoy.

Start off your holiday by giving and join your friends for a morning 5K run.  The entire family is welcome, including the four legged ones.
