Race Details

The Half Marathon, 10K and 5K will be timed races on USATF certified and sanctioned courses. The 1-mile 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 finishers. 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 Dr., 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.
