I:40 Race Service with the help of the Muskogee Running Club and Muskogee Parks & Recreation will host the the Okie Half on March 13, 2021.  In 2020, we battled terrible weather and an impending worldwide pandemic, and somehow got the event in.  Okie Half 2021 brings a new course that starts/finishes inside the newly restored "Hatbox Hanger", now called the Hatbox Events Center.  This will also be the USATF Oklahoma Half Marathon State Championship and will be a great flat half marathon course for runners of any pace to enjoy.  The 5k course will also be on the flat trail around Hatbox Sports Complex. 

There will be lots of goodies and extras with this event, including a long sleeved shirt for the 5k runners and a Hoodie for Half runners.  Custom finishers medals for half finishers and BBQ Meal afterwards.
