TATUR Estim8tur Run – 2010 Results

Watches – Phones – Sundials – Leave them at home!

A bit over a week ago, 63 athletes enjoyed pleasant conditions while enjoying a unique running event in Tulsa, Oklahoma called the TATUR Estim8tur.

What is so unique? The top finishers are not those that are the fastest but the ones that can most closely guess their finish time for a four or eight mile course. Your guess is also stapled to your back which may add clarity or confusion to yourself and others.

To add a bit more excitement, you don’t know the exact route prior to the start of the race. Ha! Sound like fun? 🙂

Course

Simple – four or eight mile.

There may be some road, some dirt, some grass, some park. The exact details were saved for race day.

Results

8 mile

The top 3 Estim8turs were able to guess their overall time to within one minute. The top 10, within two minutes. Toss in a relatively unknown course with varied terrain – I would call that pretty damn good!
