The 2019 Marathon has Changed Course and will end at the Myriad Botanical Gardens at Hudson and Sheridan Street.
From the Oklahoma City National Memorial Marathon:
As our city continues to change, we are asking you to join us in Changing the Course of OKC. With the development of the streetcar system, a new downtown park and so much new growth along the course, we have listened to runners and are changing the course of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon in 2019 and 2020.
The Start Line remains the same – in front of the OKC National Memorial & Museum, reminding everyone Why We Run to Remember… but the Finish Line changes. Runners have loved ending in Automobile Alley for 18 years and we have all enjoyed watching that section of Broadway transform to what it is today. However, the race has simply outgrown the space and organizers don’t want to become any more of an impediment to thriving small businesses. The Memorial Marathon is so grateful for all the Automobile Alley merchants have done to accommodate the race, but as the city changes, the Marathon course has to change with it.
The Finish Line for 2019 will be at the corner of Hudson and Sheridan – the southwest corner of Devon Energy. In 2020, the five races of the OKC Memorial Marathon will finish at the new Scissortail Park.
