MARATHON TRAINING CALENDAR

Due to the large size of our training group, the postponement of the OKC Memorial Marathon and in the interest of protecting the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision to cancel our training runs until June 13, 2020.

This decision is based on the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) public health situation and our inability to sufficiently ensure that our training runs do not contribute to the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus within our community.

We know runners are going to run and we encourage you to continue training on your own or in small groups. Check out your favorite trail or maybe try a new one - including Lake Hefner, River Trails, Lake Draper, Lake Overholser, Katy Trail, Mitch Park, Arcadia, Earlywine Park. Continue to follow preventative measures EVEN IF YOU FEEL WELL as recommended by the CDC:

- Practice social distancing of at least 6 feet;

- Practice hand hygiene, including frequent hand washing, use of hand sanitizer, and avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth;

- Practice respiratory etiquette, including covering cough and sneezes with a tissue, and then disposing of the tissue in the trash;

- Clean frequently touched surface and objects daily (including tablets and cell phones); and

- Perform vigilant self-monitoring; stay home if feeling unwell, developing a cough, or running a fever. Seek medical care if you develop these symptoms.

Visit CDC.gov and Health.ok.gov for additional information about preventive measures and latest developments.

We will continue to carefully monitor events related to COVID-19 as local and national developments emerge – stay close to our social media and email for updates and additional information.  Hope to see you all June 13, 2020.

2020 Spring Training 
Water Stop Sponsors / Help Needed

Choose a date to help with the water stops and someone from the training committee will contact you the week before your scheduled stop and provide details on when/where/how to setup the stop. All equipment is provided, all we need is for you to pickup the equipment the day before the training run, fill the water coolers, setup the stop the morning of the run, and tear down the stop after the run. YOU CAN STILL PARTICIPATE IN THE TRAINING RUN! Just get everything setup early and then come to the start and run as usual! Following your run, go back and pick up the equipment, drop it off and you're done!

Spring marathon and half marathon training will start on Saturday, January 4, 2020.  All paces welcome from elite to walkers.


Registration/Membership – The training group is a free open service to anyone wanting to train for any aspect of the Marathon Training 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.
