Thousands of runners took part in Sunday’s Williams Route 66 Marathon, and organizers said a world record was set.
Julia Webb set a Guinness Book of World Records record for fastest time finishing a half-marathon while pushing a stroller; and she won the half-marathon for females overall (with that stroller) with a time of 1:21:24, organizers said in a news release Sunday.
About 1,700 people took part in the 26.2-mile course; nearly 3,800 ran the 13.1-mile half-marathon, organizers said.
Nathan Chamer set both an overall men’s course record for the Route 66 Marathon and the Oklahoma state record in the master’s male half-marathon. He won Sunday’s half-marathon for men overall with a time of 1:09:35.
“Course support this whole weekend has been amazing,” said Destiny Green, executive director of the marathon.
“Our runners are having a great time and enjoying everything Tulsa offers. The races went smoothly, and the weather was beautiful.
“We appreciate our sponsors and volunteers; there is no way to bring this to Tulsa without them. Any year you set course records is a good one for runners, and we saw record-setting runs this weekend.”
