Sparky Scamper Virtual 5K

Tulsa Parks is hosting its 2nd annual Sparky Scamper Virtual 5K. What is a virtual 5K? We're glad you asked... A virtual 5K is a 5K race (translated into 3.2 miles) that you complete on your own, in your own time and in your own way. Your entry fee benefits the City of Tulsa's Charitable Giving Campaign. Included in your entry fee is a special gift from our very own Tulsa Parks mascot, Sparky, as well as an entry into a drawing for prizes and a race medal.
