Turning Work into Teamwork At the Williams Route 66 Marathon, we are always looking for new ways to make your experience unique. New this year is the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma Corporate Challenge – an opportunity for organizations to compete against each other for bragging rights. Corporate teams are divided into four divisions based on the total number of employees in the organization. Teams compete are judged according to (1) how many employees participate in the races, (2) the performance of those participants, and (3) fundraising for the Tulsa Area United Way. A corporate challenge cup is awarded to the team from each division with the most combined points from each of the three judging criteria. This finely crafted award will remain on display in the winning team’s office until the week of the marathon the following year.

“This competition is a great opportunity for companies to engage employees in physical activities and encourage active lifestyles while raising money for the Tulsa Area United Way. We are looking forward to some friendly competition with other corporations as we take a step together toward a healthier community.”

– Ted Haynes

president of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma Corporate Challenge at the Williams Route 66 Marathon is a great opportunity for organizations of all sizes to promote workplace wellness, support a charity and build teamwork within your organization.

RELAY INFO

The Williams Route 66 Marathon relay is a 5-leg relay event. The marathon relay will follow the same course as the marathon. One runner can run more than one consecutive leg of the relay. However, each relay team must have between three and five participants. Mixed teams must have at least two female participants. All members of a team must be 40 or older for the Masters division. Relay Exchange Zones

S U N D AY R A C E S / M A R AT H O N / H A L F M A R AT H O N / R E L AY

The Relay exchange zones will be clearly delineated with cones and fencing. As runners approach the relay exchange zones, relay runners will be directed to the right side of the course and marathon/half marathon runners will be directed to keep left.

25

RELAY TEAM MEMBERS MUST KEEP THE EXCHANGE ZONES AND THE MARATHON COURSE CLEAR. IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO CROSS THE COURSE TO GET TO EXCHANGE ZONES 1 AND 3. RELAY PARTICIPANTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING ACROSS THE STREET SAFELY AND FOR CROSSING THE COURSE WITHOUT INTERFERING WITH ANY OF THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS. COURSE MARSHALS WILL BE THERE TO HELP GUIDE YOU ACROSS THE COURSE. PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF THE TRAFFIC AND CONSIDERATE OF THE OTHER RUNNERS. Leg # Exchange #

Marathon Relay Exchange Zones – While You’re There

Be aware of the conditions and dress appropriately for the wait. There will not be much in the way of shelter at the exchange zones. Water and portable

restrooms will be available near each exchange zone. It would be a good idea to have a clothes bag for each exchange zone so that the runner just finishing will have some warm, dry clothes when he/she is done running. The runner starting out on the new leg can leave her/his clothes in the bag for the teammate to take back to the start. However you work out the logistics, you are responsible for your own gear! Don’t leave it on the bus and don’t expect the volunteers to be able to take care of it for you.

Marathon Relay Numbers and Timing Tag

Team members must wear a number visible on their front. Team members must also wear a “RELAY” bib on their back. Each team will be given one D-TAG Timing Tag attached to a Velcro strap. This strap should be worn around the runner’s ankle. The Velcro strap with the timing tag must be handed off to the next runner in the fenced exchange zones. The next runner should attach the strap around his/her ankle before proceeding to the next exchange zone. The timing computer can only read a tag that passes within a foot of the timing pad. If a runner does not want to wear the Velcro strap around his/ her ankle, he/she must bend over and make sure the chip passes within a foot of each timing pad. The last runner of each team must wear the timing tag for scoring the overall team finishing time.

RUNNING RESPONSIBLY Whether an avid runner or a beginner walker, we all benefit from a pure environment – and we owe it to future generations to protect the nature around us. Following its 2011 races, the Williams Route 66 Marathon received ReSport Certification from the Council for Responsible Sport, and race directors continue to be environmentally conscious and committed to sustainable efforts. “It’s so rewarding to see all the result of our efforts and to know that we’re setting a good example,” said Jessica Hargis, Director of Sustainability. “Committing to sustainability may take a little extra time and energy, but it’s worth it!”

Participants play a big role. With the help of AEP Public Service Company of Oklahoma, we are offering renewable energy credits for purchase – to help minimize our carbon footprint. In addition, participants can contribute by doing the following: • Donate your old running shoes. • Carpool or check your bike on race day. • Use your own water bottle.

S U S TA I N A B I L I T Y

• Watch for recycle stations.

31

Our goal is to set an example by minimizing our carbon footprint and being as environmentally friendly as possible while still putting on the best race for our participants.

R A C E D AY D E TA I L S

It is the primary goal of the Williams Route 66 Marathon to provide and ensure a safe event for participants, volunteers and community attendees alike. We will be diligent in not exposing the participants, the volunteers or the community at large to any undue risk in the production and/or execution of the event. We understand the commitment the participants have made in entering the race, however, the decisions regarding race cancellations and/or alterations will be based on the larger community safety as well as the participants. Moreover, if community resources are threatened, we will act to protect them from unnecessary stress.

33

When weather conditions or other physical conditions present a danger to the participants as a whole, the Williams Route 66 Marathon officials maintain the right to cancel the race. Less threatening conditions could cause alteration of the race and/or the race course or length of the race to further ensure participant, volunteer and community safety. The conditions fall under the “Act of God” – and will not result in refunding of any race entry fee or future race credits. The staging of an event of this magnitude places large financial burden on the Williams Route 66 Marathon organization prior to the event date. Thus, in the event of a forced race cancellation or alteration, it is probable that the financial impact on the race would not be any different than if the race was held without compromise. The Williams Route 66 Marathon officials, along with city officials, will make decisions regarding the

cancellation or alteration of the race. Prior to the race, the Williams Route 66 Marathon officials will apprise the participants of the weather conditions and how the on-course flag system designation works. Williams Route 66 Marathon officials will describe any changes that may be decided as a result of weather or other unsafe conditions. In the case of a course evacuation, Williams Route 66 Marathon officials and city police and other city officials will communicate throughout the race course; and will direct participants to safe shelters to await transportation back to the start and/or finish area.

WEATHER

In regards to weather specifically, the Williams Route 66 Marathon has adopted the WBGT (wet-bulb globe temperature) index as its standard. High heat and humidity, as measured in accordance with the American College of Sports Medicine recommendations for participation in endurance events, could result in cancellation of the event. WBGT is considered ‘the most practical heat stress index characterizing the effect of a heat stress environment on the individual.’ WBGT was developed because the dry-bulb temperature alone does not provide a realistic guide to the effects of heat, inasmuch as it does not take humidity and heat radiation into consideration. WBGT is so-called because two of its input variables are


wet-bulb temperature and a ‘blackglobe’ temperature; the third variable is the shielded dry-bulb temperature. The result of the WBGT will be indicated on a flag system that will be displayed at the start and finish area as well as at the medical stations along the race course. The flag color will indicate the safety conditions based on the WBGT readings. They are listed in the table below. At the starting line there will be a banner over the street. Suspended from that banner will be 2 flags, each 2’x3’. The flag color will reflect the heat stress at that moment. Medical aid tents will be stationed along the course. Each medical aid station will be flying a flag of a color corresponding to the heat stress at that time. The flag colors will change within 15 minutes of a change in the heat stress level. The staff at the aid station will know the meaning of each color flag. Extreme conditions that are high risk already place a burden on community health care systems, including

emergency medical transportation, as well as hospital emergency room capacity. This burden encroaches on overall community safety and will be recognized as unnecessary and illadvised scenario of which the Williams Route 66 Marathon officials will not knowingly place the community in any such position. The Williams Route 66 Marathon asserts that each participant assumes responsibility when entering an event with the potential risks that a marathon presents. All runners should be discerning of their own fitness level in their decision to enter the marathon and associated events. Furthermore, it strongly advises all participants to cooperate with directives given by Williams Route 66 Marathon officials and to assist in ensuring the safety of their fellow participants, particularly when conditions are less than ideal. As the WBGT lowers in cold weather and EAS alerts go to yellow and/ or red it is strongly recommended that all runners slow their pace and reduce their risk of hypothermia when conditions warrant.

RACE DAY COLD WEATHER PREPARATION TIPS

Note: Please remember, in cold weather conditions, wear your bib number on your outer-most layer of clothing. •Wear a waterproof or waterresistant outer layer. •Avoid heavy cotton fabrics that absorb and retain moisture; opt for technical fabrics that shed moisture and wick water away from the body. •Pay particular attention to keeping your hands, feet and head warm and dry as these are areas where a runner may exchange heat at a faster rate. •Wear a running hat or visor to shield your eyes from potential rain and increase visibility. •Due to the chance of rain/snow mix and/or ice, watch for standing water or icy patches on the roads and in the park.

R A C E D AY D E TA I L S

•Exercise additional caution during the race to account for slick surfaces and limited visibility.

35

•Bring an extra change of dry clothing to change into immediately after the event, including dry shoes and socks. •Pack extra clothing in a waterproof bag and check it at the gear check area. •As wet weather can lead to hypothermia, if you experience persistent shivering during or after the race seek immediate medical attention at the nearest medical facility on course or at the finish line.

The Williams Route 66 Marathon offers 15 Gatorade/water stops on the marathon course. There are more than adequate amounts to ensure hydration under favorable conditions. If those conditions worsen, additional amounts will be prestaged and deployed, but it should be reasonable to assume that supplies may not be limitless due to logistical constraints entailed in such a distribution effort. The Williams Route 66 Marathon is committed to the safety of all of our participants, our volunteers and the community at large.

Finding balance.

Williams employee Amy realized her life was out of balance. As an engineering manager and single mom of two teenage boys, she was tired all the time, overweight and less focused than she needed to be at work and home. “I made myself a priority, which I hadn’t done in years,” she said. “And I discovered a competitive drive and athletic spirit I didn’t know I had. Everyone who knows me has seen a dramatic change in my physical and mental well-being.” The Williams Route 66 event will be her fifth half marathon in a year. We’re proud to support the Williams Route 66 Marathon. Congratulations to Amy and all the participants in the Williams Route 66 events. We make energy happen. TM
