RGG-Logo-lockupOklahoma City, OK – Oklahoma Gazette, The Broadway Clinic and Optima Health and Wellness Center present Ready, Gazette, GO! a free, family-friendly fitness festival to encourage Oklahoma City metro area residents to improve their health by creating new and better fitness and nutrition habits.

The free festival runs from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 28, at the beautiful downtown Myriad Botanical Gardens. The event will feature over 30 exercise classes clocking in at 30 minutes each, allowing attendees to sample multiple types of activities in one convenient location. Cooking demonstrations and nutrition classes will also be featured at the festival. Health care professionals from various clinics in the metro will be on hand with information on nutrition, fitness aids and alternative therapies.

A highlight of the event is the timed one-mile race. This unique race allows runners to run their best time anytime between 2 and 4 p.m. Flexible start times eliminate the starting line crowd and also give the runners a chance to experience other elements of the festival without missing a start time. The first 100 runners to sign up for the free race will receive a free event t-shirt.

“Oklahoma Gazette is dedicated to the citizens of our community. This event originated out of the desire to improve Oklahoma’s national rankings in regard to high rate of obesity and poor health,” said Christy Duane, marketing director at Oklahoma Gazette. “We want to expose metro Oklahoman’s to a variety of fitness, nutrition and health options in an accessible and fun way.

”To kick off the event the Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation department will be hosting a community workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.
