This Saturday from noon to 9 p.m., Boulder Avenue and Archer Street will turn into a tricycle raceway.

The first Boulder Dash will be held with 64 racers starting at the top of the bridge on Boulder and racing over jumps and drifting to the finish line in front of Welltown Brewery, 114 W. Archer St.

The event coincides with Welltown Brewery’s first anniversary. After the races, a street party will take place in front of the brewery.

The supplied adult tricycles come with brakes, but drivers may not want to use them because spectators are encouraged to throw water balloons at the racers during the race.

Admission is free for spectators. Entry fees for racers and their teams range from $75-275, depending on if they want VIP access.

“We can’t express how excited we’ve been with the amount of people that have come and supported us through every event we have been a part of. Tulsa has really welcomed us. Being a part of Tulsa, we are wanting to give back,” said Jeremy Diamond, founder of Welltown Brewing and event organizer.

“We threw this Boulder Dash event as a birthday and as a kind of big ‘thank you’ party.”

Teams consist of three members who must be 21 years old or older and present for each race. Pre-registration is required at boulderdashtulsa.com.
