Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with today's Groupon for entry in the Oklahoma Run to Defeat Diabetes. The race takes place on Saturday, September 17 at 9:00 a.m. at the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get entry and a T-shirt for one person (a $25 value).
  • For $20, you get entry and T-shirts for two people (a $50 value).

Racers suit up for the second annual Oklahoma Run to Defeat Diabetes, which benefits the Harold Hamm Oklahoma Diabetes Center, a program instituted by the University of Oklahoma to promote the wellbeing of people afflicted by or at risk of diabetes. Hosted by the OU Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, the 5K race commences near Heisman Park and sprawls across 5,000 flat, scenic meters that keep runners on course with the assistance of gravity before clocking to completion at Owen Field. Beyond the finish line, a bounty of eats and beverages awaits ravenous tummies, and an awards presentation acknowledges the top three finishers in each age group. Runners also receive a Dri-Fit T-shirt, which protects mobile bodies by pulling sweat away from skin and emitting a force field in the event of rain. All proceeds from the race benefit the Center, which strives to provide education and care for underserved communities as well as conduct research to cure and prevent the disease.
