Description

Red Coyote is thrilled to introduce the inaugural Red Coyote Half Marathon to the Oklahoma Running Scene this Spring. This past year has presented us with many obstacles and opportunities to reflect and learn, and we believe our Pack is stronger than ever. We are ready to celebrate our Pack, and the strong roots of OKC running community.

We hope you will join us for this landmark event that pays homage to our history as we look with clear eyes towards the future. We are offering both in-person and virtual options to runners for this inaugural year. We’ve been working diligently to ensure that our course, premiums, and race day experience guarantee participants an exciting union and opportunity to compete whether they are in-person or not. 

The event will start and finish in the Boathouse District, run along Oklahoma River Trails, and visit Scissortail Park downtown. The run is the culmination of the Red Coyote Half Marathon training program and is also open to runners and walkers of all abilities. 

All runners will receive a premium race towel, pint glass, and custom finisher medal!

Don't miss your opportunity to order limited edition Red Coyote Half Marathon merchandise as well coming soon, so be sure to follow Red Coyote on social media @redcoyoterunning

Event will likely reach the registration limit set by the Oklahoma City Special Events requirements so don't wait. Sign up today!
