The Big Game?
Yes, this race is the morning of that lil' ole annual gridiron clash between the University of Texas and The University of Oklahoma. Show your team spirit on race day and then we'll give you information on where to find food, drinks and of course, a big screen TV so you can cheer your favorite team on to victory without leaving the race site!

Pick A Side... Or Don't and Run Anyway!
Are you a University of Texas alumnus or fan? Are you a University of Oklahoma alumnus or fan? We want to know. When you register, you will get to pick your swag - orange or red. Those who pick a favorite team will have their team colors reflected big and bold on their race shirt, race bib, and half marathon finisher medals.


For those that don't have a favorite team between the two or for those who can’t stand either, we’ve got you covered too! Come enjoy an amazing run and be treated to beautiful, quality, race shirts, bibs, and half marathon finisher medals with neither team color reflected on them!
