I'm absolutely in love with the Williams Route 66 Marathon! This was my 3rd year in a row to participate in my hometown race. I've now completed the Full (2012), Half (2013), 5K (2013) and Relay (2011) and I plan to do the Full in 2014.
The Medals - The medals are literally award winning. They have a few different types such as a "My First Marathon" Medal, a Medal for Half Fanatics, Marathon Maniacs, and a medal for 50 States runners.
The Detour - This race is called the "Shortest Ultra" because runners have the choice to run an extra .3 miles and take the Center of the Universe Detour. If you do, you end up running 26.5 miles and you get an extra coin to commemorate the experience.
The Course - they changed the course this year and it was still a great course that ended at Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa. A little hilly, probably more so than most were expecting.
The Swag - Everyone gets a participant shirt, but you have to purchase your own finisher's shirt. Not a big deal to me.
Maniac Corner - If you are a Marathon Maniac, Half Fanatic, or 50 State runner they have a special VIP area for you to hang out after the race, drink beer, get warm, and refuel. Love it!
Expo - The expo is good. Not the largest I've seen but not the smallest either. Other races show up and some of the big gear names like Garmin show up.
Support - The race support is like none other! Even though this year was literally freezing, the water stops and aid stations were amazing and the crowd support was great!
Race Ap - They have an ap for iPhone and Android users so your loved ones can track you as you cross certain checkpoints on the course. Pretty cool for those who can't go with you to the race.
Mascot Dash - After the 5k on Saturday they hold a short race for local sports and business mascots called the Mascot Dash. It's pretty fun to watch and gives the race a little extra special feeling.
