April 30 – Harvey Ave., OKC
From okcmarathon.com: The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is about more than running, it is about celebrating life. This is the spirit in which the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon was conceptualized by two Oklahoma businessmen who, while on a morning run, created the outline for this inspiring event. A group of volunteer chairmen and Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum staff lead a volunteer corps that plans and implements the weekend of events allowing the maximum amount of proceeds benefit the memorial and museum. From its inaugural race in 2001 with just shy of 5,000 participants, the event now hosts over 24,000 runners and walkers from every state and several foreign countries. The race begins at different times April 30 depending on age division and type of race. Visit okcmarathon.com for registration and more information.
