The Oakland Running Festival is a two-day celebration of running that includes a full marathon, half marathon, team relay, 5K, and the Lucky Kids' Fun Run. The city opens its streets to thousands of runners, walkers, and excited volunteers and townspeople who come out in droves for this one-of-a-kind event.  Runners of all ages and abilities will enjoy this super-sized racing weekend in one of California's most historic locations, Oakland, Calif.
