Alameda Running Festival routes

Starting and finishing at the USS Hornet and Sea, Air and Space Museum the Alameda Running festival will have you inspired by the dedication of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The waterside route makes for stunning views of the Alameda seafront, and keeps runners cool with a fresh sea-breeze.

After the race join your fellow runners in a cold beer, soft drink and make a day of it by getting involved with the music or family activities.
