The Valero Fast Half
(Certification Code OK-10002-DG)
We didn’t name it the Fast Half for nothin’...Runners can expect to run a personal best on this course. It is mostly downhill and mostly straight. Beginning at the Murray Co./Carter Co. line in the Arbuckle Mountains, the point-to-point course winds downhill through the beauty of the foothills before entering the 9 mile straight-away into Ardmore. Runners will enjoy the 531 ft. drop in elevation for the first 8.5 miles of the course, saving energy for the shallow rolling hills at mile 9 leading back into Ardmore. Runners turn east to finish to the music and cheers at the 50 yard-line inside Noble Stadium.
