Oakland Running Festival and Marathon

March 24, 2019—All Day
Eastshore Park, Oakland, California

Returning this year to Eastshore Park, the 10th annual Oakland Marathon and Running Festival is one of the Bay Area’s biggest and most popular running events. Registration is now open, so sign sign up now to run the marathon, the Kaiser Permenante 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 Eastshore Park on the shore of Lake Merritt near MacArthur Blvd. 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.
