The Golden Gate Half is more than just a 13.1-mile run through San Francisco.

Rather, it is a spectacular journey through this stunning City by the Bay. The chance to run across the Golden Gate Bridge is an experience unlike any other, but it is far from the only breathtaking moment youll enjoy along the way.

The fun begins along the shore of the San Francisco Bay. Youll line up at the storied Muni Pier in Aquatic Park, where you can take in magnificent views of not only the Golden Gate Bridge, but also infamous Alcatraz. From there, youll trek through both the Marina and Presidio as the bridge draws ever closer.

Launched in 2014 as The Towns Half Marathon by Oakland local and sports marketing professional, Ryan Dawkins, before being acquired and then cancelled in 2017. Ryan is now spearheading the re-launch of the Oaktown Half to finish his original plans of a runner-focused, hyper-local event, in his hometown.

Runners will get a taste of Oaklands authentic soul, from the steps of City Hall and Jack London Square to Uptown and Lake Merritt, the course will let runners in on the best of Oakland. Like everything else in Oakland, the experience will never be ordinary and always unexpected.

The Oaktown Half is in partnership with the successful Oakland Turkey Trot and continues the non-profit group's efforts to raise impactful funds for Oakland Schools and Alameda County Community Food Bank.
