TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa's 2010 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure saw more than 12,000 participants lace up their shoes for the cause. Nearly $1 million was raised to help patients right here in Tulsa in the fight against breast cancer.

And this year's race could be bigger and better than ever.

Komen Tulsa is celebrating 15 years of service in our community. And quite frankly, the race space at 81st & Lewis has gotten kind of small. So the race is moving.

With so many people involved, Komen Tulsa felt it was time to look for a new race site. With so much activity in downtown Tulsa, it seemed like the perfect location. So this year's race will start at ONEOK Field, home of the Tulsa Drillers.

There will be the timed 5K as well as the untimed race and a 1 mile fun run.

The big race will start at Archer and head west to Denver where we'll then head south, taking us right past the BOK center.

We'll continue south to 7th street where the race will head back east to Detroit, then a short jog south to 8th street and continue west back to Denver.

Once at Denver, the race heads back to Archer, then east to boulder and then north to Brady, where the race route turns east and heads back to the finish line at Elgin.

It's going to different and it's going to be exciting as we gather at the ballpark for this year's event.

So mark your calendar for Saturday, September 17th for this year's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure starting at ONEOK Field.
