A NEW RACE DISTANCE FOR EVERYONE
Register before March 1st to assure you will receive your medal, race shirt and finish line tape before the virtual race day! Plus registering before this date means you have a better chance at winning one of the hundreds of prizes we’re putting in the race packages!
This year, we can do VIRTUALLY anything we want! So in order allow our Team Relay participants to complete their distance at their own pace and time while socially distancing from their teammates, AND to give Oakland Running Festival participants some added flexibility or a new challenge to try, we are adding a 10K distance.
In a typical year, each team relay member completes about 6 miles for their leg. Because we cannot offer the same relay logistics in a virtual race, we have made the decision to offer a 10k (6.2 miles) so relay members can do the same distance on their own. All registrants who deferred their Team Relay registration, will be able to sign up for the 10K.

This year, the race will be run virtually on the course of your choice. As we approach race day, we will provide some tips on creating your own race route. Once we return to a live event in 2022, it is unlikely we will be able to offer an individual 10k race.
Walkers Always Welcome!
In 2021, you can walk, run, crawl or skip your virtual race with no restrictions. Walk with your dog? Sure! Push a stroller? You bet! Do your miles inside on a treadmill? You got it!

Packet Pick Up
We are hoping to hold a live, socially distanced packet pick up in March. More information TBA!
If you do not attend the packet pick up, your items will automatically be mailed to you!
Still want to be a part of a team? Join a Social Team!
Having the support of your friends during your training and race is priceless, but we decided to add an extra incentive! Regardless of when your teammates register, the entire group will get a $10 refund/discount once your team reaches 10 or more members. (The 10th member, and anyone after that, will automatically receive the discounted price. Members 1-9 will get a refund directly back to the card used to pay for registration.)
