Running Route 66

Lyric Camper (HF18055) ROUTE 66 – Tulsa, OK


✅ 15 of 50 States – This weekend I completed Route 66
Here’s the run down:

RACE INFORMATION: Let us just say that the race director and staff did a very very good keeping us informed. Received emails everyday during race week. Well organized.

TRAVEL: Flew SOUTHWEST into Tulsa, OK from Tampa FL. Had connecting flights no issues. It was easy to get around small town for us big city places

HOTEL: HYATT PLACE
Very modern, clean and distinguished in downtown TULSA. The room phone and heat did not work well but you were WARM in your bed. No bathtub and no hot tub

EXPO: Not much to see vendor wise but very organized. EXPO was whack but stayed 4 hours. 😂 – Running joke
You were able to pick up other runners bibs with no hassle

COURSE: This course had lots of short ROLLING HILLS. Plenty of water stations but way more ALCOHOL STATIONS and portable potty were the CLEANEST. TONS of neighborhood spectators cheering us on and block parties for the HALF MARATHON CRS

SWAG AKA MEDAL BLING:
Love any races that offer a 5K and Half Marathon medal. Who does not like DOUBLE bling for the weekend.

*5K medal
*Half Fanatic marathon medal
*Event Shirts 5K
