Norman runners win 2014 Oklahoma City Marathon

Jason Cook, 32, won the 2014 Oklahoma City Marathon with a time of 2:42:29 on Sunday.

Camille Herron, 32, won the women’s race and placed fourth overall with a time of 2:51:20.



Both runners are from Norman. Cook placed third in last year’s race and Herron set the women’s course record in 2012.

The marathon was set to begin at 6:30 a.m., but strong thunderstorms including small hail, pouring rain and gusting winds postponed the race until 8:20 a.m.

Oklahoma City National Memorial director Kari Watkins told The Oklahoman via text message that the race had a must-start time of 8:00 a.m. But that was overruled as downtown became clear of any storm threats.
