2019 Finale 5K

Before the Opening Night 2019 festivities kick-off at 7pm on Monday, December 31st, start your New Year’s Eve with the 5th annual Finale 5K! This festive run will begin at 3pm at the Finale Site, just east of Bicentennial Park downtown and is a USATF certified flat and fast course—great for runners of all abilities.

All runners will receive an Opening Night wristband for entrance to the evening’s activities and the first 250 registered participants will receive a limited edition Finale 5K t-shirt!

Coffee, water, and bananas are provided before and after the race. Also, from 2-3 pm we’ll have the Thunder Drummers, Storm Chasers, Thunder girls, and Rumble from OKC Thunder providing entertainment and meeting the crowd! There will also be live music and entertainment throughout the race.

Don’t forget to dress festive—neon, glitter, capes, costumes, whatever sets you apart—the most festively dressed person wins a prize! There will also be finisher medals for all runners and original artwork and prizes for the top male and female runners, and the top 3 age group/gender runners.

The Finale 5K is a fun, family-friendly way to ring in the New Year, so sign up today!
