Once upon a time in a place that seems so far away we gathered together to participate in runs. This past year we have had to live in a "virtual" world of racing. We may have even started thinking that running in races was all just a fantasy in our heads. Magically the world is starting to get back to normal and we can now have live and in person racing!

We were so sad that the Oklahoma City marathon and half got pushed until Fall and the Aquarium Half has gone virtual that we needed to have a race to help fill the void! Plus we now have a reason to get out there to do our miles.

We are excited to announce the "Mythical Marathon and Half" is coming your way! Join us on Sunday, April 25 at the Jenks River Walk to run some "magical" miles. Dress up as your favorite mythical character (not required but it will be a lot of fun) and come back to the land of reality so that we don't end up wondering if running together was all a myth!

We will give awards to the top 3 overall male and female in both the Full and Half and 5K and 3 deep in the standard 5 year age groups for all distances.
  • Shirts for all participants who register before we run out!
  • Fantastic finishers medals for all distances
  • Flat and fast newly certified courses.
  • Discount for Marathon Maniacs/Half Fanatics
  • Party at the themed aid stations
  • Friendly competition and selfies!
  • Costume contest! Who's gonna win the "Best Costume" trophies?
  • Virtual options available!
No Team scoring or Team awards.

We've come up with a route we are sure you will enjoy. Starting at the south end of the Jenks Riverwalk path and skirting the Aquarium to follow the paved trail out to 111th and then back to the Jenks Pedestrian bridge. From there we will do an out and back past the River Spirit Casino to the 71st bridge and then back to the start. The half group will do this course once and the full group will do it twice. It will be a magical journey for sure!

We encourage you to dress up as your favorite mythical character... Unicorns, Fairies, Big foot, Cyclops, etc. Use your imagination to see who can come up with the best costume. Not into dressing up and are excited to actually RACE? Costumes are not required. Put on your fastest shoes and we will see you on the starting line of the Mythical marathon, Half or 5K!

Mythical themed aid stations will be located every 2-3 miles with water, Gatorade and snacks to fuel you on your way.

Parking is available at Jenks River Walk and the race will start on the path at the North end of the shopping Center.

All courses are USATF certified, flat and fast!
