2023 marks the 23rd running of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and for the first time
ever, special registration pricing was offered to thank runners and bring them back to the streets
of Oklahoma City for the Run to Remember in April 2023.
For 23 hours, September 7 to September 8, the Marathon offered 23% off registration
for all races. More than 2,000 runners from 38 states and two foreign countries signed up during
those 23 hours. General registration is now open for all races.
Also new in 2023, the Senior Marathon is being added for anyone age 65 and over.
Individuals walk or run 25 miles – about 1.5 miles weekly between January and
race day and then meet at the Start Line in front of the Memorial to run their last 1.2 miles
completing a marathon. “We are excited about the possibilities of bringing a whole new
group of people out to enjoy race weekend,” said Kari Watkins, Race Director.
There is a race for everyone – Marathon, Half Marathon, Relay, 5K, Senior Marathon and
Kids Marathon, spread over two race days, April 29 and 30, 2023.
WHY WE RUN
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is Oklahoma’s largest marathon bringing
together runners from all 50 states and a dozen countries to celebrate life
and honor those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever
by the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building.
The Memorial Marathon is the largest fundraiser for the privately owned and
operated Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. For more information go to
