Race Details

  • Date: April 4, 2020
  • Distance: Half-Marathon, 10K, 5K, 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk

The half-marathon, 10K, and 5K will be timed races on USATF certified and sanctioned courses. The 1-mile fun run is not a timed race. All races start and finish at the Oklahoma Aquarium.

Awards will go to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place; male and female; and age group winners (top three per category.) The overall winners will be determined based on “gun” time, while the age group winners will be scored on “chip” or “net” time.

A commemorative medal will be awarded to all finishers. Overall winners will be announced after each race and awards will be available at the awards table inside the main entrance of the aquarium. Results will be posts inside the aquarium as soon as they are finalized for each race.
