An Evening with Tim VanOrden

An Evening with Tim VanOrden


Real Food Tulsa is delighted to announce a very special event for our November meetup:

The evening of Sunday, November 2nd, Tim VanOrden (, aka the Raw Runner, will be giving a dynamic lecture presentation at Tulsa's unique University Club Tower. Tim is an internationally known raw foodist and Olympic level athlete and it's a true honor that he has chosen Tulsa as one of his stops while he's on tour. Tim has been experimenting with what's possible in the world of physical performance since 2005 and he's been sharing his journey all along the way. Here's your opportunity to meet Tim and see how he's thrived on a raw food diet while being an athlete.

I've had the opportunity to speak with Tim several times and I couldn't be more excited about this event. Tim has the heart of a teacher, the mind of a true scientist and the fitness of a healthy 20 year old, although he just celebrated his 40th birthday. Tim's reputation, gentle spirit, infectious sense of humor and dynamic message will certainly draw a crowd from outside of the raw community. This will be a great opportunity to create interest and educate others.

At 5 pm, I'd like to offer a raw food tasting (sophisticated name for potluck :- ) If you are able to bring a raw food dish to share, please do so. Tim will be joining us for this and he will begin his lecture at some point before 6 pm. It's important to be in the building before 6 pm because the doors to University Club are locked to the general public at that time for security reasons. Being on time will ensure that you don't miss anything!

There are numerous videos throughout the internet featuring Tim, but here's one of my favorites ( of Tim making his morning Running Raw green smoothie.

To your glowing health!
