Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and Half
Date : April 28,2013 The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is not about running, it is about life, honoring the memory of life lost through tragedy, celebrating the gift of life given equally to each person, and reaching forward into the future to life yet to be lived. This is the spirit in which the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon was conceptualized by Thomas Hill and Chet Collier, two Oklahoma businessmen who, while on a morning run, created the outline for this inspiring event. Since that morning run, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon has been run ten times. A group of 24 volunteer chairmen lead a volunteer corps of more than 6,000 to carry out the full weekend of events. From its inaugural race in 2001 with just shy of 5,000 participants, the 2011 event hosted nearly 25,000 runners and walkers from 49 states and six foreign countries. The mission of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is to celebrate life, reach for the future, honor the memories of those who were killed and unite the world in hope. This is not just another marathon. It is a run to remember…and a race to show that we can each make a difference and change the world. The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is the sole beneficiary of Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon event proceeds. The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon has contributed more than $3 million dollars to the Memorial since its inception.
