To support health and fitness of all ages through recreational running.




The Oklahoma City Landrunners have established the following awards as a way to honor individuals or organizations who have made major contributions to the running community.

The awards focus on the Landrunner Mission Statement: 
               "To support health and fitness of all ages through recreational running."

Maybe you know someone whose dedication to the running community is consistent with the mission statement of the Landrunners. If you are a Landrunner in good standing, you may nominate someone or an organization for one of these awards. 

The individual submitting the form may only nominate a candidate in one of the two categories within the same year.  A person may nominate multiple individuals or organizations  within the same year.  A previous nomination may be resubmitted the next year.

Applications to nominate must be postmarked by June 30th.  Email the completed and signed application to or send by standard mail to Oklahoma City Running Club, P.O. Box 18113, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73154.

Process: The Landrunner Research and Recommendation Committee will review the nominees' application and will verify or resolve any discrepancies in the nominations.  The committee will make their recommendations for honoring individuals to the Landrunner's Board of Directors. The Board will have the final determination on issuing the award. Awards will be presented during the fall banquet.
