As part of the World War II home front efforts, hundreds of ships were built here, including 142 Victory ships (the Red Oak Victory is still there and can be visited). It was also the site of the Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant, built in 1930 and by 1942 converted to assemble jeeps, tanks and other military vehicles. Thousands of dedicated women and men worked to create the means necessary to ensure our victory. It's from their spirit of hard work and determination that we've named this race and hope to inspire excellence in all our runners.
So join us and run along the scenic San Francisco Bay Trail! The half marathon distance will have pacers thanks to the TriValley Running Club. Walkers/hikers and runners of all levels are welcome.
