The Oakland Running Festival is entering its 12th year. While this year and last are certainly different than the first 10 years, the incredible running community has helped us to keep the feeling of a festival alive. It is that spirit that keeps us running in the streets year after year. This year, all the shirts will have the same logo. This will help to remind all of us that it doesn’t matter what distance you run or where you run; we are always coming together in celebration of Oakland California.

Run with us


Oakland Running Festival- March 21, 2021

About the Race

This year marks the 12th Oakland Running Festival and it is on the map to stay.  It has been nationally recognized as the Bay Area race to run. Although, in 2021, we will have to endure the Oakland Running Festival virtually due to Covid-19.

Once we are back to our live events, you can be sure to experience Oakland’s diversity and beauty with a race that touches all aspects of Oaktown, and finishes with one hella awesome party.
