Keep Running to Remember and celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon

For the 25th Anniversary year, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is introducing the Quarter Marathon. Participants have the option of running 6.55 miles individually or as a 4 person team to complete a full marathon. Teams can Start Together, Run Together and Finish Together. The Quarter Marathon will be run Sunday of race weekend with the Marathon and Half Marathon. This race is part of the Governor’s Marathon Challenge. If your Quarter Marathon team beats the Governor’s team, each runner gets an “I Beat the Gov” T-shirt. For a bigger impact, sign up for the Why We Run Weekend Series and run the 5K on Saturday and Quarter Marathon on Sunday. You’ll earn a special Why We Run medal and shirt. With the addition of the Quarter Marathon, the Relay race is being retired, allowing the Marathon to continue to grow and evolve.
