Oakland Marathon Running Festival

March 22, 2020—All Day

Running across the Bay Bridge is just part of the fun at the 11th annual Oakland Marathon and Running Festival which this year has a course start at Snow Park on the shore of Lake Merritt. Registration is open, so sign up now to run the marathon, the Kaiser Permanente half marathon, the Bank of the West 5K, or the team relay.

Or join the We Run the Town Challenge and run the half marathon and 5K on the same day to win an extra medal. On Saturday there will be a Kaiser Permanente Health & Fitness Expo where race participants can pick up their packets or complete late registration.

All events begin and end at Snow Park on the shore of Lake Merritt at the corner of Harrison and 19th. The 5K loops around the lake, while the marathon and half marathon make a loop around central Oakland. The marathon course also takes runners along the bay shore of West Oakland and across the Bay Bridge to San Francisco and back.
