Marathon and half marathon expected to sell out soon

Based on historical registration data, event directors expect the marathon and half marathon to possibly sell out as early as this weekend and all races to sell out before race weekend.

“In previous years, it has been common for over 20% of marathon and half marathon participants to register for the Williams Route 66 Marathon in the week leading up to the final price increase,”, said Chris Lieberman, executive director of Tulsa Route 66 Marathon Inc.  “We expect an even greater percentage to register this week since we are so close to selling out.”

Participants can check route66marathon.com where each race will be listed along with the percentage of registrations sold. This information will be updated daily.

All participants will receive an all new item this year at packet pick-up – a drawstring athletic bag, courtesy of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma. The first 8,000 participants to attend the expo will see a special message on their bag, commemorating the race and date. This nylon backpack features mesh trim, which conveniently allows the contents to air dry. It also features a zipper pocket with a headphone port.
