Runners of all ages proceeded through the first turn of the sixth annual Will Rogers Memorial 5K Race Saturday morning at Rogers State University. More than 650 participants registered for the 3.1 mile run, hosted by the Will Rogers Memorial Museums. 

The race began and ended at the RSU entrance directly across from the museum. Jacob Krumwiede, Will Rogers Memorial Museums business manager, said pre-registration increased from last year by nearly 200 participants. 

Proceeds from the 5K and one-mile Fun Run will benefit the memorial museums.
