This year’s OKC Marathon course is a sneak peek at next year’s 20th running of the Run to Remember.
From tragedy to triumph, OKC will never forget.
Since 2001, the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon has been held to help remember those killed in the 1995 bombing as well as benefit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum.
After the bombing, a security fence was quickly erected around the perimeter of the bombsite. This fence became a de facto memorial of sorts, with mementos, cards, prayers, toys, stuffed animals and the like left by Oklahomans and visitors who wished to pay their respects to and remember those who were killed.
Visitors are always surprised about the metro’s combination of art, history, entertainment, food and nightlife and more. Here are some must-visit places in America’s best-kept secret in tourism.
In early 2015, the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum reopened its facilities with 35 new interactive exhibits, hundreds of never-before-seen artifacts and thousands of video and oral histories.
