Who's going to Long John's Big Meat Run 3/12-3/14
Back in 2001, Long John Sumner, rock-star leader of Wagoner Machine Shop, invited his friends and customers who ran 44-inch or larger tires to a St. Patrick's Day Weekend 4xRun in the rocks below Grand Lake Dam at Disney, Oklahoma. Over the years, the Big Meat Run became the premiere 4xevent at Disney, and one of the hot rock crawling events nationally. When the machine shop closed, off-road adventurers feared the event would end. Fortunately, John reopened as Sumner Machine Works in Arkansas City, Kansas, and the event lives on.
Hosted by Hogan's 4x4 Campground, adjacent to the 'wheeling area, the Big Meat Run has become one of the largest gatherings of big-tired rock crawlers in the country. Off-road adventurers with smaller tires are welcome to run with the big-boys and girls by detouring around some of the most challenging rocks found anywhere
