This past weekend Oakland Raiders Legend Kenny Shedd and the Raiderettes - Football’s Fabulous Females - greeted and cheered on men, women, and children of all ages at the finish line of the 5th Annual Oakland Running Festival. The race which started and finished at Snow Park in Downtown Oakland highlighted an eventful weekend for participants of the festival which was voted in Competitor Magazine Best Marathon in the Pacific West for 2013.
