The rain started to fall not long after runners and their families gathered at the Survivor Tree at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon was delayed 30 minutes due to the rain and lightning on Sunday, but the races were held despite the cold, wet weather. Three staff photographers from The Oklahoman were positioned around the course to document the 11th annual marathon around the city, including a wedding at the 6 mile mark.
