Marathon Will Be An Age Group Qualifier

We are honored to have been chosen as one of the qualifying marathons for the 2021 Series (3rd Edition) of the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Rankings.

During the qualifying period which begins January 1, 2021, runners can compete in eligible marathons across the world to earn world ranking points. At the end of the qualifying period, the top-ranked runners in each age category will be invited to the 2022 AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships. Sign up for the 2021 Memorial Marathon to compete!

“After most of the running world hit pause in March of 2020, we are delighted to see some of our age group qualifying events returning in person, following their local protocols and guidelines to keep all runners and event staff safe. We thank the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and all our partners who continue to help us develop the opportunities for age group runners across the globe and we hope that things continue to improve for everyone in the months ahead,” Tim Hadzima, Executive Director of Abbott World Marathon Majors.

At the end of each qualifying period, the top-ranked runners in each age group will be invited to the 2022 AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships.

“We’re proud to join this prestigious world championship series and provide our runners with this unique opportunity to elevate their racing to the next level,” said Kari Watkins, Race Director, Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.
