Rt. 66 Marathon Recognized

The Williams Route 66 Marathon, in its fifth year, is the recipient of a second place award recognizing the best marathon medals in the United States. Marathon and Beyond, a bimonthly magazine designed for runners of marathons and ultramarathons, conducted the nationwide medal competition.

“This recognition is an incredible honor,” says Chris Lieberman, executive director of the Williams Route 66 Marathon. “We knew that our medal was unique and a favorite of many of our runners, but to be recognized by an international publication is truly an accomplishment.”

The Route 66 Marathon and Half Marathon medals change each year, and the new design will be announced at the Route 66 Quarter Marathon in August.

The Williams Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa is set for Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010, and the Route 66 Quarter Marathon is Saturday, Aug. 7, 2010. Events are held annually the Sunday before Thanksgiving and the first Saturday in August, respectively. The fifth anniversary of the Williams Route 66 Marathon weekend includes a two-day health and fitness expo, pasta dinner, marathon, half marathon, five-person marathon relay, 5k run/walk and a one-mile fun run/walk. Post-race festivities include concerts and a classic car show. For more, www.quartermarathon.com.
