Half-Marathon – 10K – 5K – 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk
The Aquarium Run is one of the area's premier race events with more than 2,000 runners and spectators expected this year. The event offers a half-marathon and 10K, perfect as training runs in advance of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, as well as a 5K and a family-friendly 1 mile fun run/walk. All registered participants enjoy complimentary race-day Aquarium admission for a stunning cool-down, viewing the amazing Oklahoma Aquarium sharks, stingrays, jellyfish and thousands of other aquatic animals. Also all runners receive complimentary snacks, beverages and a finisher medal!
The Aquarium Run is a terrific opportunity for sponsors to appeal to a motivated, family friendly audience, while supporting a nonprofit educational asset for our community. Learn more about sponsor opportunities.
We also need volunteers! This is a great chance to enjoy the Aquarium and even get a first look at Sea Turtle Island. Sign up here.

The Half-Marathon, 10K and 5K will be timed races on USATF certified and sanctioned courses. The Fun Run is not a timed race. All races start and finish at the Oklahoma Aquarium.
Awards will go to overall (1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female) and age group winners (top 3 per category.) The overall winners will be determined based on "gun" time, while the age group winners will be scored on "chip" or "net" time.
A commemorative medal will be awarded to all participants finishing each race. Overall winners will be announced after each race and awards will be available at the awards table inside the main entrance of the Aquarium. Results will be posts inside the Aquarium as soon as they are finalized for each race.
Race Schedule and Maps:
All races will start on Aquarium Drive, on the Northwest side of the parking lot. All races will finish through the main finish line directly in front of the main entrance to the Aquarium. Bike and course marshals will be provided for each race, but the responsibility for knowing the course falls on the participant. City of Jenks and City of Tulsa officials will provide road closures as needed. Official maps and start times will be posted closer to race day.
|Half-Marathon||10K||5K||Fun Run (13 & Over)||Fun Run (12 & Under)|
The Half-Marathon, 10K and 5K will be timed with electronic timing. The timing device is attached to the back of your race bib — please do not remove it. Please wear the number on the front of your body and do not cover it – it needs to be visible to finish line officials.
Shirts and Aquarium Admission:
A free Aquarium Run tee-shirt will be provided to all participants, with an option to upgrade to men's or women's tech shirt. Please register by March 10th to guarantee your desired size. All registered participants receive free race day admission to the Aquarium.
Location and Parking:
The races will start and end on Aquarium Drive in front of the Aquarium. Limited parking is available in the Aquarium parking lot. Please be alert to police direction for overflow parking. Please arrive no later than one-hour prior to your race as lines to park can get long, and with construction in the area may be extra long in 2017.
There will not be a scheduled rain date. In the case of rain or severe weather, no refunds will be awarded and all registration and sponsor fees will be considered a tax-deductible donation.
The 2017 Aquarium Run is timed by UltraMax Sports.
