Lawtonians are revving up for the first 3Mile Thursday tour through downtown Lawton. Beginning on August 1st, this FREE event will be held the first Thursday of each month. The tour will be led by Chief Smith and many merchants will be offering discounts and specials to 3Mile Thursday participants who show their registration wristbands.

Chief of Police James T Smith said;

"The 3Mile Thursday is a great opportunity for our community to get involved. It is a family event where the community can view the downtown business district from the street level and get some exercise."

"This is an opportunity for citizens to come out and participate in a community event and see why Lawton Fort Sill is a wonderful place to live, work and play."


The first 3Mile Thursday will take place on August 1st, at the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce at 302 W Gore Blvd starting at 5:30 p.m. Runners, walkers, joggers and shoppers of all ages are welcome to participate.  Participants can view the course map at
