ROCK THE ROUTE!
Run on the Mother of all Roads. The Williams Route 66 Marathon showcases the best of what Tulsa has to offer! Start your race in downtown Tulsa, home of the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture outside of Miami, and then make your way through Tulsa’s vibrant and diverse neighborhoods and the campus of Tulsa University. If there’s one thing you can count on at the Williams Route 66 Marathon, it’s tons of on-course support from the local community and plenty of fun. Our neighborhoods host block parties all along the course to welcome and cheer on the runners! The Williams Route 66 Marathon is a USATF certified course and a Boston Qualifier (see Boston Athletics Association for qualifying times)

The block parties put on by spectators were awesome.. BUT the volunteers/people who put together the race (especially the ones waiting at the end)were second to none. They made you feel like you were the most important person and that this was the most amazing thing you just did. So thankful!
The course is great fun - challenging but not overwhelming and very diverse. I love the fact that the 5K and Half / Full are on different days. The more races I can fit in a weekend the better.
The community! First time I have run a race where at mile 2 I was offered a shot of fireball. I've been to several races and this one by far had the best crowds. They make it a party and it shows. The confetti at the start of the race for each corral was cool too.
It was a fun party atmosphere, the people in the neighborhoods cheering us on an offering us stuff was awesome! Best race I have ever participated in!
