OkC VIRTUAL Memorial Marathon
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is a signature OKC event bringing together athletes and spectators from all over the world to honor those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever by the tragic events of the Oklahoma City bombing – 25 years ago this year. It is a wonderful analogy of the character of our people, the history of our trials and difficulties and the way in which we have overcome and persevered.
From its inaugural race in 2001 with just shy of 5,000 participants, the event now hosts over 23,000 runners and walkers from every state and several foreign countries.
The mission of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is to celebrate life, reach for the future, honor the memories of those who were killed and unite the world in hope. This is not just another marathon. It is a #RuntoRemember – and a race to show that we can each make a difference and change the world.
2020 Race Information
Celebrating 20 years in 2020 and voted one of the 12 ‘must-run’ marathons in the world by Runner’s World magazine, the OKC Memorial Marathon has been postponed to Oct. 4, 2020 and will now be one of the most amazing virtual runs you have ever experienced! Participants can run the race anytime between Oct. 4-18, 2020.
While this year's race cannot take place in the traditional manner, the OKC Memorial Marathon team is working hard to ensure the reason you run the race is made available to you via technology and through media partners. For instance, participants will still be able to experience the 168 seconds of silence as we all pause to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever.
