The marathon course also features a tour of the University of Tulsa campus, a private, premier institution originally known as Henry Kendall College founded in 1894 and moved to Tulsa in 1907. Today, TU has more than 4,000 students and is ranked 75th among national doctoral universities in U. S. News & World Report’s 2012 edition of America’s Best Colleges. The University of Tulsa has undergone major transformations and renovations over the past few years – the most recent being the addition of the Lorton Performance Center – and we’re excited to show off our beautiful campus, The University of Tulsa. The Brookside Entertainment District is a stretch of local restaurants, retailers, bars and venues located between 32nd and 41st Streets on Peoria Ave. Centered on Brookside is the Cosmo Cafe and Bar, Leon’s Sports Bar and many unique shops. Many of the popular course sections from previous years remain, including Cherry Street, Cascia Hall, Swan Lake, Woodward Park, Riverside Drive and of course, the Center of the Universe Detour.
The Williams Route 66 Marathon, presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, will feature new courses this year. The changes were necessary to accommodate the increased participation in the races and the change to a two-day format.
