OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Oklahoma Seniors are gearing up for a run to remember!
The OKC Memorial Marathon is hosting a free event for Seniors this weekend with 130 exhibits, free giveaways, retirement planning, and health and fitness with live music.
The Senior Marathon is open to individuals 65 and over. Participants are allowed to bring your friends and walk or run 25 miles (about 1.5 miles weekly) between January and Race Day.
On April 29 at 8:00 a.m., seniors are set to meet up at the starting line to complete the last 1.2 miles.
Marathon officials say whether participants choose to run or walk, the race is a powerful way to keep active and celebrate life!
