Spring marathon training for the OKC Memorial Marathon & Half Marathon will start on January 5, 2013.
Also, "The Walking" training program will once again be available. If you are a walker or want to begin running and need help getting started.... This is the group to get involved with! It help you achieve your goal of walking/jogging in the 5k, Relay, Half, or Full Marathon.
Registration/Membership – The training group is a free open service to anyone wanting to train for any aspect of the OKC Memorial Marathon on April 28th or just wanting to get some physical activity. We would love to have any interested runners/walkers join the OKC Running Club as well but it is not required. We will routinely have membership applications available for those who would like to join the club. Annual memberships are $20.
Courses - Out & Back and Loop so they can be modified to fit your individual training plan. They are on public streets and paved trails. Trails - run on the right, streets - run on the left against traffic and obey all traffic signs. Run at your own risk.
Water Stops – We will have water/sports drink stops at the start/finish area and approximately every 3 miles along the routes.
Water Stop Closing – The water stops will be closed based on a 15 minute per mile pace. If you can’t finish the course by that time and you need water, we recommend that you start earlier so you can finish before the water stops close or carry water with you.
Treats to Share – It has been a long standing tradition of this training group that members bring food treats to share with the other runners after the run. You are welcome to participate in this tradition. Typically, people bring a homemade loaf of bread, brownies, bagels, fruit, pretzels, or something similar. If just a few people do this each week there is generally plenty to go around. So, pick a week and treat your fellow runners!
We look forward to another good training season.
