The Runners

The Runners

Located right outside Oklahoma City’s main sports arenas, the Chesapeake Energy Arena and Cox Convertion Center, is a large sculpture by Oklahoman artist Richard Muno of two runners carrying the Olympic Torch in dedication of the Olympic games held in Oklahoma City in 1989. The location of this piece is fitting considering it resides between the homes of the Oklahoma City Barons and the Oklahoma City Thunder and right across the street is a Big 12 Timekeeper Centennial Clock. “The Runner” is a great addition to an already lively sports alley in Downtown Oklahoma City. Recently, Oklahoma City became an official training site with the renovated Oklahoma River, the only river to be named a U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Site.
