Parking:

There is a good deal of parking on the east side of Holy Family Cathedral. Just make sure and park to the south of the fence in the parking lot. Other parking on the streets near that area, primarily between 8th and 9th street and between Boulder Ave and Boston Ave.  will be free Saturday morning. To assure you are there at the start of the race, you should be in the area and finding a parking place by 8:00 at the latest.

FATIMA STORYTELLING

Parents with young children – this year we are excited to have a dynamic telling of the Fatima Miracles to not only keep the young ones entertained but also excited about miracles and Mary and how they point to Jesus!  So please bring the whole family!  You can bring your children to the Fatima Storytelling group at 8:45 — they will keep them safe and entertained until you return from your run, walk or prayer time.

ROSARY RELAY

After the Run & Walk are complete, we will have a fun Rosary Relay. Registered Runners and Walkers can form teams of 4 and run (or walk) (in total) a single lap around the parking lot, passing a rosary to one another as they go.  Each member of the winning team will receive a beautiful custom-made rosary from Oklahoma Rosaries.  All paying runners and walkers are welcome to compete – there is no additional fee or need to sign up beforehand.
