2021 Marathon Postponed to October

November 10, 2020

Thank you to all who participated in the virtual 20th Annual Memorial Marathon. We loved seeing how everyone embraced our virtual race!

While the virtual run was fun, we want to run TOGETHER in 2021! So, we are postponing the 2021 Memorial Marathon to the weekend of October 2-3. If delaying the race a few months allows us to run together on one weekend, we are willing to wait.

This decision is based on recommendations from the Memorial’s Come Back Team of community leaders, medical professionals, emergency management, first responders, and in consultation with other major marathons.

“While the virtual race exceeded our expectations this year, we realize how meaningful it is to all be together in person for the #RUNtoREMEMBER,” said Kari Watkins, Race Director. “This is not just another marathon, this is one of Oklahoma City’s signature events that brings our whole community together.”

Details on all COVID-19 protocols, and the new course maps will be released as they become available. The weekend start line schedule is shown below.
