1017 - ALL Medals

The Williams Route 66 Marathon is famous for its award-winning finisher medals, and we know you’ll love the bling for 2023. This year’s finisher medal is styled after the iconic Route 66 Historical Village sign located in Southwest Tulsa on Route 66, marking the third in our series of Route 66 icons. The Route 66 Historical Village is a transportation theme park that seeks to educate visitors about Tulsa’s history in the transportation, oil, and refining industries. It features the tallest oil derrick in North America, vintage rail cars, historic pump jacks, a trolley, a fully restored caboose, and more, making it the perfect stop for visitors to the Tulsa area. 
As we celebrate 17 years of Rocking the Route in Tulsa, we’re making our way toward our 20th anniversary! Make sure you register now to secure your spot at the start line and your right to earn the third in our Route 66 icons medal series.
