For Participants
You’ll pick up your race day packet and enjoy the opportunity to prepare for race day with run-centric vendors – footwear, apparel, nutrition and more.

Sustainability – Please bring your reusable bags to the Expo in our efforts to reduce waste at the Oakland Marathon. Thanks to our partners we will also have reusable BPA-Free Open Water aluminum water bottles at the finish and organizations supporting us in redirecting waste & recycling efforts. In 2023 the event diverted 2,400lbs of CO‚ÇÇ, saved 328,548 gallons of water and created 1,000 meals.
