review of 2016 Route 66 Marathon.   

4 / 5 Stars

Review

Best finisher medal ever! Lots of music/crowd support for the 1st half of the race. After the split it get's a little lonely. Was way more hilly than expected. The detour is a neat feature to have as well.

Race Tips

The course is very hilly. Tulsa is not flat. Lots of rollers. It seemed to be mostly concrete too. Wear well cushioned shoes.

We arrived Friday night a watched the 5K Saturday morning. It's a good idea to do so because that is where the race finishes so you can plan meeting spots for your family. If you do both the 5k and marathon you get a nice pint glass.

Challenging yet enjoyable. Great crowds even if the conditions happen to not be ideal. Bands along the course. It's the historic Route 66, what's not to like.

Race Tips

Train for hills. Race day temps probably won't be over 60 and could be in the 20's. Don't start out fast, the hills will catch up to you.
