Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd

October 17 - 18, 2020


Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd at Eagle Bluff Resort, Tahlequah, Oklahoma

100 Mile, 100K, 50K, 25K and 10 Mile Race

Join us for the Pumpkin Holler Hunnered race on October 17th & 18th. You will agree we have found a little slice of heaven nestled along the beautiful Illinois River, Eagle Bluff Resort, and the Nickel Preserve.

The Pumpkin Holler Hunnered was founded by Ken ‘Trail Zombie’ Childress in 2011 and continues to impress runners and volunteers alike. The beautiful scenery, the finish line food and fire, the outstanding aid stations, and the enthusiasm of the race directors keep people returning year after year.

This is one of those ultras that you have to do. Distinct, positive, scenic with a personality all its own, in a beautiful place I otherwise would never have discovered. Best possible aid and volunteers.

Scott Peters, 2016

J.T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve

The Pumpkin Holler course circles the 17,000 acre J.T. Nickel Family Nature and Wildlife Preserve. Nickel Preserve is the largest privately protected conservation area in the Ozark Mountains. It is adjacent to the Illinois River and provides a natural habitat for some unusual bird species. In 2005 the Nature Conservancy re-introduced a herd of Elk. You will likely hear the calls of the bull Elk during your race. Nickel Preserve contains a vast array of oak, hickory, and pine woodlands and a mix of savanna, shrubland and prairie.
