Title: Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon Special Event 16-24 April
Post by: WA9AFM on March 30, 2016, 12:06:28 PM
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, better know as the 'Run To Remember', was established in 2001 to remember 'those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever' by the Murrah Federal Building bombing on 19 April, 1995.

The amateur radio community supports the Marathon with over 90 radio operators providing public safety and logistics communication.

To allow members of the world-wide amateur radio community to join in this celebration the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon Special Event returns this year.

The Marathon Special Event begins at 0000Z, 16 April till 1900Z, 24 April. Special event stations within the State of Oklahoma will identify using the call sign N5M (‘National’ 5 ‘Memorial’). On race day, a station will be on the air at Mile Marker 13 (halfway point) on the race course to close out the event.
