_ The 2024 Rooster Days Run presented by TTCU Federal Credit Union:

“Rooster Days” – A Local Tradition
In the Spring of 1931, there was a thriving poultry industry on the farms and acreage surrounding Broken Arrow.  Secretary-Manager of the chamber at that time, Leo S. Wortman, came up with the idea of establishing a special day for farmers to bring to market their excess roosters.  On that first Rooster Day, about 5,000 pounds of roosters, more than two tons, were sold here. There were prizes for the best rooster, the biggest, noisiest, etc.  A highlight of the day was a sound system, which played music noisily all day. People gathered to visit and to enjoy each other’s company.

Even though the rooster has just about disappeared, we still celebrate annually in what has come to be the oldest festival in Oklahoma known as Rooster Days.

The Rooster Days Run presented by TTCU Federal Credit Union is an annual 5k and Fun Run that coincides with the Rooster Days Festival.    The races start and finish at the festival and are run along Main Street in downtown Broken Arrow.  The festival is held at Central Park in downtown Broken Arrow. 

All participants receive a cotton race shirt as well as a great finisher medal.  Food is available post race as well as beer for those 21 and over.  Bring the whole family and enjoy the race and then stay around to enjoy the festival.  

Special Pricing for entrants aged 18 and Under!
