Corrals

The OKC Turkey Tracks 5k will be using a multiple corral start system based on the race pace you provided during the registration process. Corrals will be assigned based on your anticipated race pace, allowing us to group like-paced participants together. This will help us ensure a safe and fun race experience for all participants.

There will be two corrals (A and B) that will start approximately four minutes apart. Your start corral assignment will be printed on your race bib number and you can look it up by logging into your EnMotive (race registration) account.

Note: Runners can move back in corrals but not forward. For example, a runner assigned to Corral A may line up in Corral B but a runner assigned to Corral B will not be allowed to line up in Corral A.

Parking

There are a number of parking lots and parking garages within a mile of the start/finish at 5th Street and Harvey Avenue. Nearly all the lots will be open and free on the holiday, but there may be a few pay-to-park facilities as well.

Remember that Harvey Avenue will be closed between 4th and 6th streets before and during the event. Because there are four highways you can take to enter the city, here’s what we recommend for each:

If coming to the city from the west on I-40, take the Western Avenue exit into the downtown area.

If coming from the east on I-40, take the Robinson Avenue exit.

If coming from the north on I-235, you should take the 10th Street or 6th Street exits.

If coming from the south on I-235 via I-35, you should take the Harrison Avenue exit.
