By now, you probably already know that the 2020 Williams Route 66 Marathon marks our 15th anniversary! We’re so excited to celebrate this milestone with you that we decided to do something big to mark the occasion. We’ve put together a medal series that will start this year and lead up to the 20th-anniversary event in 2025, featuring your favorite “larger than life” symbols from across Route 66 in Tulsa. Any guesses on what our 2020 inspiration is?
Ok, we won’t make you wait to find out! This year’s medal features Buck Atom – yes, that Buck Atom, the roadside cowboy inexplicably holding a rocket ship, known as Route 66’s muffler man space cowboy. Buck is the first in our special five-medal series leading up to our 20th anniversary, so you’re definitely going to want to add him to your collection! We’ve never done a medal like this before, so make sure you snag this piece of Route 66 history (the race and the road) while you can!
