Ratings & Reviews for the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon

3.3 Stars from 3 Reviews



review of 2016 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

Really well run race - tremendous number of volunteers involved - water/powerade stations almost every mile - many giving out pretzels & oranges. Great spectator involvement throughout the course both cheering and giving out the typical things but also many giving very cold bottled water and some odd things like bacon. This is very much an entire city event and it shows - all of the hotels gave extended checkouts - great shuttle system to/from the race - they really have it going on. Race is a little more up and down that you might think but plenty manageable - just be aware that it is very windy in OKC - wind was out of the south today at about 25mph - race is a north south point to point race and it was tough getting back in. I will certainly run this race again.

You can't best the atmosphere. This is truly running for a cause.

Race Tips

Pay close attention to the wind on race day. When we turned going south along Lake Hefner the wind was BRUTAL. My pace dropped 30-45sec/mile in that section.
