The Run to Remember
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is a community-driven event that began in 2001 as a fundraiser for the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. Learn more about Why We Run here.
The inaugural race kicked off with just shy of 5,000 participants. Fast forward 20+ years and the event has grown to host more than 25,000 runners and walkers from every state and several countries. It’s been named as one of the “must-run marathons” by Runner’s World magazine. It’s also an official Boston qualifying race.
Five events take place throughout race weekend: Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K, 5-Person Relay and Kids Marathon. Participants in the Kids Marathon run 25 miles leading up to the weekend, then finish out the last 1.2 miles on race day.
The Health & Fitness Expo kicks off race weekend festivities. It opens on Friday for packet pick-up and runs through Saturday. The Expo is open to all and features dozens of vendors with the latest in running gear and apparel.
All event proceeds benefit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. We encourage everyone involved with the race to learn more about our story — each participant will receive one free admission to the Museum.
