Participants are sure to experience a few surprises when they visit Tulsa for the Williams Route 66 Marathon, including earning the race’s award-winning finisher medal! Voted “Best Finisher Awards” for 2018 by readers of Oklahoma Sports & Fitness, the Williams Route 66 Marathon draws inspiration from classic hood ornaments from the Route 66 era, a time of adventuring Americans crisscrossing the country with their automobiles. The 2019 design features Art Deco elements combined with style cues from the hood ornaments of early 1940s Cadillacs. “Our medal is both an homage to downtown Tulsa’s incredible Art Deco architecture and a nod to the incredibly rich history of Route 66. The early 1940s Cadillacs were considered the ‘finest’ car to drive during the heyday of the Route 66 era, so it’s only fitting that we showcase them in our Route 66 2019 medal,” Destiny Green, executive director of the Williams Route 66 Marathon, said.

You’ll never find a boring cotton t-shirt here, that’s for sure! You’ll want to rock your Route 66 Marathon gear on race day and all year-round. Click here to see the 2019 Swag!
