The Memorial Half Marathon allows participants to be part of a truly exceptional running event at a distance many can walk, run or walk/run with 8-12 weeks preparation. The race begins and ends at the stunning Gates of Time, winding through the Capitol and the most beautiful, historic neighborhoods in Oklahoma City. Along the way, runners pass banners bearing the names of the bombing victims, an important reminder of the marathon’s goal of honoring those who were killed. Whether you are a veteran runner or this is your first race, the Memorial Half Marathon will be an unforgettable experience.

For more information, contact Red Coyote at email@example.com.We are using the Chronotrack timing system to ensure that everyone receives an accurate time. Per USATF Rule 245.1, Open Men's and Women's and Master Men's and Women's top three awards in the Marathon and the Half Marathon will be based on gun time (the order in which the athletes cross the finish line). Age group and Relay awards will be based on timing system time (the actual time elapsed between an athlete reaching the starting line and finish line). Digital clocks will be located at each mile and at the 5K splits to indicate the unofficial running time. The digital clocks at the finish line display your unofficial time. Official time is determined by the Chronotrack timing system.
Walkers are welcome in the Half Marathon!
All Half Marathon participants receive a goody bag, t-shirt, poster, and heartland hospitality both on and off the course (food, beverage and availability of medical care and massage to aid your recovery). Half Marathon finishers receive a custom finisher's medal.
