This event is not just a race, it's an immersive experience. Beginning at West Oakland, the race will start with a few fast and flat miles to get the runners buzzing before arriving at the entrance to the Bay Bridge path. As runners cross the bridge for the first time, they are treated with incredible views of the SF skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz. Reaching Treasure Island, runners will turn back and make their way back along the same route, getting a front row view to Oakland's ever-changing town-scape and gorgeous rolling hills.
Upon finishing, runners will be treated to the Finish Festival at Old Kan Beer & Co where they will experience local food and beer, and be treated to truly the best the city has to offer.
