FORT SILL, Okla. (KSWO) - Fort Sill recently started their 2023 Fort Sill Family MWR Run Series with their Polar Plunge 5k.

The MWR Run Series’ second event will be the Buffalo Soldiers Run at 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 25, at the 3-mile track on Fort Sill. It is open to the public as long as you have a visitor’s pass for Fort Sill, and it costs $35 to participate. The $35 will also include a t-shirt and medal.
