Marathon to benefit OKC Metro Alliance

Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — OKC Metro Alliance Inc. will be presenting its third annual Strides of March Half Marathon at 8 a.m. March 9. The race course is in Southeast Oklahoma City along the scenic shores of Lake Stanley Draper, a city park and family recreation area. The Half Marathon at Draper Lake will start and finish just outside the Marina area of Draper Lake.

The timing of this run also presents an excellent opportunity to prepare for the Memorial Marathon, which is in April and benefits OKC Metro Alliance’s FIRSTEP programs that assist Oklahomans who want to recover from substance abuse. Both courses, the 5K and the Half Marathon, are certified by the USA Track and Field Association. Electronic timing will be done by DG Productions.
