Congratulations to all 504 Oklahoma Christian runners in this year’s Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. For the third year in a row, we had more participants than any other organization. The Oklahoma Christian community has been very intentional about the marathon. After 15 runners from OC participated in 2006, admissions director Darci Thompson and dean of students Neil Arter took the baton and ran with it. They signed up 182 runners in 2007, followed by 416 in 2008. Last year, 522 runners signed up through Oklahoma Christian, including staff, students, alumni and family. Athletic director Curtiz Janz has also been instrumental in the success and training of TeamOC. The race is the primary focus of the campus fitness initiative known as TeamOC. In fact, the runners have their own t-shirt, Flickr group, facebook page and a page on the popular marathon training Web site The OC men’s cross country team placed first overall in the Memorial Marathon’s relay event. The women’s cross country team placed 11th overall. To all the participants, the Oklahoma Christian community is proud of you!
