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, and you might just find an unofficial “aid station” or two! Take the option to add on an extra 0.3-miles onto your race at the Center of the Universe Detour for the “World’s Shortest Ultramarathon,” or head straight to the finish at Guthrie Green and enjoy the post-race party!
8:00 AM CST
The Williams Route 66 Marathon Relay consists of three to five legs, with distances varying from 5 to 5.6 miles in length. This consistent distance allows team members to train together as a team, making it the perfect corporate initiative. Racers will compete on a USATF certified course while being electronically timed.
Individuals are allowed to register for the marathon or half marathon in addition to the relay. However, these “double runners” are required to run the first relay leg (or the first two relay legs) and then continue with their individual race. “Double runners” must register and pay for both events. After they have completed their relay leg(s), they will be required to switch their race number back to the individual race number.
Participants in the marathon relay will receive a hoodie made of technical fabric that will keep you comfortable whether you're in the middle of a long run or a rest day. Keep your skin safe with SPF 40+ sun protection, too! The Relay hoodie is unisex sizing.
Shuttle buses will be provided from the Guthrie Green Shuttle Hub to the relay exchanges zones. You must be wearing a marathon relay race number to board the relay shuttle buses. Spectators are not allowed on the marathon relay shuttle buses. Shuttle service is only available between the Guthrie Green Shuttle Hub and the designated relay exchange point. You cannot ride the shuttle from one exchange point to another without going back to the Guthrie Green Shuttle Hub.THE MARATHON RELAY SHUTTLE BUSES WILL LEAVE APPROXIMATELY EVERY 30 MINUTES AS NEEDED.
You should arrive at the Guthrie Green Shuttle Hub at least one hour before you expect to start running your leg of the relay. You are responsible for getting to the exchange zone on time. The timing of the relay shuttle service is not guaranteed. You can download the Relay Shuttle map by clicking the link below. See relay shuttle maps here
