Started in 2001 with less than 5,000 participants, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon now hosts around 25,000 runners from around the world who gather each year to honor the 168 victims of the 1995 bombing.
It’s more than just another marathon. It’s a celebration of life.
The Marathon was voted one of the “12 must-run marathons” in the world by Runner’s World magazine, these 26.2 miles are packed with cheering supporters and the most beautiful neighborhoods in Oklahoma City. The course begins at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, winds through the Capitol, and Oklahoma City’s historic neighborhoods, and ends in Automobile Alley! Along the way, runners pass 168 banners, each bearing the name of one of those who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing.
The Marathon is a Boston qualifying USATF sanctioned event on a certified (OK-08019-DG) 26.2 mile single loop course.
