Returning this year to Eastshore Park, the 9th annual Oakland Marathon and Running Festival is one of the Bay Area’s biggest and most popular running events. Register to run the marathon, Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon, Bank of the West 5K, or four-person relay. And don’t forget to sign younger runners up for the kids’ fun run.
The scenic 26.2 mile trek will start at Eastshore Park near MacArthur Blvd, wind its way up through the gorgeous Claremont area, pass by the Mormon Temple, and head back toward downtown. After passing through Fruitvale and West Oakland, runners will traverse the final three miles toward the finish line at beautiful Lake Merritt.
