If you have attended any previous editions of the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough, you have undoubtedly heard our race announcer utter the words, “This is not a drill,” as riders begin the event. This proclamation rings true today as we face the complex and rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. In these unprecedented and uncertain times, please know that our board, staff, and community partners are vigilantly monitoring the situation.

The 15th annual Saint Francis Tulsa Tough currently remains scheduled for June 12-14. Any decisions regarding changes to the event will be made following CDC guidelines on public gatherings with additional guidance from federal, state and local government officials.

We are committed to prioritizing the safety and wellbeing of our participants, the healthcare system and the public at large and are grateful for the efforts of the Saint Francis Health System and Tulsa’s entire healthcare community. They all need our support in this time of need.

When we have more detailed information regarding the Saint Francis Tulsa Tough, we will communicate it.

In the meantime, we urge you to follow the CDC guidelines found here


Thank you for your patience and faith in us.
