Aquarium Run

race update 8/6/2020:AQRUN Medal website

The Oklahoma Aquarium continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers is paramount. As a precaution to protect everyone involved with the Aquarium Run, we have decided to switch this year’s run to a virtual event. We know that many of you have been training for months in anticipation of this event, so we did not make this decision lightly. Walkers and runners will still be able to earn their medals and receive their free admission into the aquarium. See details below about how to participate. 

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Walk or run anywhere at any time, and support the Oklahoma Aquarium!

Registered walkers and runners for our 2020 Aquarium Run are invited to participate in our virtual Aquarium Run! You choose the date and time, and decide if you want to include your family or go solo. Walk or run at your own pace in a location of your choice—whether in your neighborhood, at the park, or on a treadmill—and you’ll receive a 2020 Aquarium Run medal for the event you registered for. Events include our 1-mile fun run/walk, 5K, 10K, and half-marathon.

All you have need to do is to track your own time and mileage with a walk, run, or workout app, and then screenshot your final results. After completion, visit the Oklahoma Aquarium, report your results, and receive a medal and free admission! All walks and runs must be completed by October 20, 2020.

Tracking Your Walk or Run

  1. Use a running GPS or smart watch such as Garmin, Timex, FitBit, Apple.
  2. Download a free tracking app such as Runkeeper or Strava.
