Quarter Marathon set for Oct. 15

To avoid the hot summer months, the third annual Williams Route 66 Quarter Marathon is moving to Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011.  Kick off your fall race season and get a preview of the Williams Route 66 Marathon course in downtown Tulsa.

Oct. 15 events include the official Quarter Marathon, a 5K race and a one mile fun run/walk.  Additionally, participants can run The Double – which includes both the Quarter Marathon and the 5K in the same morning.  The course begins in the Blue Dome district and is run on the Williams Route 66 Marathon course. Live bands and a post-race party make this an unforgettable event.

Each participant receives a goodie bag and an official T-shirt, and Quarter Marathon finishers will receive a finisher’s medal. Participants finishing The Double will also receive a technical finisher shirt.
