The Williams Route 66 Half Marathon showcases the best of what Tulsa has to offer! Start your race in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma home of the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture outside of Miami, and then make your way through Tulsa’s vibrant and diverse neighborhoods. If there’s one thing you can count on at the Williams Route 66 Half 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, and you might just find an unofficial “aid station” or two! Half marathoners hoping to join a friend who is participating in the full marathon are in luck – the courses run together until around mile 11, where half marathoners head to the finish at Guthrie Green and enjoy the post-race party while the marathoners continue on!

This year’s finisher medal is the second in our series of five iconic Route 66 landmarks leading up to our 20th-anniversary celebration.
Styled after the iconic Goodwill store sign located on Route 66 (Southwest Boulevard), this year’s medal has a 1950s retro feel that evokes a bygone era with an eye toward the future. As we celebrate 16 years of Rocking the Route in Tulsa, we’ve got our eye on our 20th anniversary! Make sure you register now to secure your spot at the start line and your right to earn the second in our Route 66 icons medal series.
Fun fact: The sign isn’t the only unique thing about the Goodwill store on Route 66! The store itself is designed in an art deco style, a nod to Tulsa’s status as the second-largest concentration of art deco architecture outside of Miami.
The Williams Route 66 Marathon is pleased to announce the second medal of the Oklahoma Standard Challenge series for Honor. We've teamed up again in 2022 with the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum to demonstrate the resiliency of Oklahomans.
Participants in the marathon and half marathon will receive a white full-zip jacket with two fully zippered pockets for your gels, keys, and whatever else you might need on the run. We chose a moisture-wicking material that is resistant to pills and snags so you’ll be able to wear it out and about no matter where your day takes you. Even better, this jacket offers UPF 50+ sun protection to keep the sun’s rays off your skin without the need for more sunscreen. This might just be our favorite jacket yet!
*Note: The marathon/half marathon participant swag is available in both men’s and women’s sizing. Please choose your size based on your preferred fit.
