Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon
Rules for Participant Safety
On race morning, you may check all of your personal items at the Gear Check Tent using the clear bag provided to you in your registration packet. Working with the OKC Police Department we are prohibiting back packs, hydration vests, camel-backs, ruck packs, air tanks and anything over-the-shoulder for use by runners on the OKC Marathon course. Running belts, hand-held clear water bottles, or clip on water bottles less than one liter are allowed.
We know some runners prefer to use hydration vests, but we join other major marathons across the country in enhancing our security around the course. After attending the National Marathon Safety and Security Summit and working with local police departments and Homeland Security we made these changes to ensure we provide the safest course possible to all of our runners. –Kari Watkins, Race Director
Thank you for helping us keep the Marathon safe for all runners, volunteers and spectators!
The Marathon is not only the largest race in Oklahoma, but is the largest fundraiser for the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. The Memorial does not receive annual operating funds from any local, state or federal government, but rely solely on the support of generous donors like you to help us maintain and preserve the Memorial and Museum year-round.
Today, we ask that you join us in our fundraising efforts. When you raise or give $10 or more, you become Tied to Our Mission and receive 2018 commemorative shoe laces. Your efforts will help teach future generations the stories from April 19, 1995.
You do not have to be a registered runner to participate. We encourage everyone to get involved and help us exceed our $50,000 Tied to Our Mission fundraising goal.
