The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is a prestigious, Boston-qualifying run held each year to honor the victims of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Voted one of the 12 "must-run" marathons in the world by Runner’s World magazine, the marathon's 26.2 miles traverse some of the city's most scenic neighborhoods.
The 20th annual #RUNtoREMEMBER is Changing the Course of OKC with a brand new route that begins at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, winds through the Capitol campus, Lake Hefner trail and Oklahoma City’s historic neighborhoods before before finishing at the brand new Finish Line Festival at Scissortail Park. Along the way, runners pass 168 banners, each bearing the name of one of the bombing victims.
Runners can also take part in the Half marathon, the Marathon Relay, the Memorial 5K and the Kids Marathon.
The wheelchair athletes begin at 6:25 a.m. The Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay begin at 6:30 a.m., the 5K begins at about 7 a.m. and the Kids Marathon begins at 8:15 a.m. Participants and spectators are invited to meet at the Survivor Tree at 5:30 a.m. for an inspiring pre-race sunrise service.
