A trio of races
This year, a trio of races will get thousands on their feet! Serious runners, funseekers, kids and seniors have a choice of foot race, including the color blast madness of the 5kolor Run. And the racing will be done in time for the entertainment, food and the beers of OktoberFest… there something for the whole family this year!
Half Marathon Start at 8:00AM
Part of the California Half and Full Marathon Series, the Oktoberun Half-Marathon takes you on scenic journey. Flat and mostly off-road, the race begins at Couthouse Square, joins the Bay Trail, and winds through the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. You’ll continue into Redwood Shores on a gravel trail adjacent to the picturesque Steinberger Slough, hit the turnaround and return to the finish line at Courthouse Square.
5K Start: 8:15AM
This 5K is for those who want a certified time, or who want to enjoy a traditional 3.1-mile run or walk on the paved, flat streets of downtown.
The 5K course converts to the most colorful explosion of fun you’ve ever had starting at 11AM. Every 1K of the course will be a different color zone, blasting you with a bright color of non-toxic powder(colored cornstarch). By the finish line, you’ll be covered in 5 colors with your smile stretching from ear to ear! This event won’t be timed , so you can play to your heart’s content.
