Oklahoma’s best post-race experience includes free admission to the aquarium for all registered participants, a medal for all finishers, and inflatables in the Kid’s Zone.

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. Posted results will determine the overall winners and awards will be available at the awards table inside the main entrance of the aquarium. Results will be posted 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.

Race Timing

AdventureTech Sports will time the half marathon, 10K, and 5K with electronic timing. The timing device is attached to the back of your race bib—please do not remove it. Wear the number on the front of your body and do not cover it—it needs to be visible to finish line officials.

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.
