Like your Grandmother always used to say, THE MORE THE MERRIER!  With that in mind, the Oakland Running Festival is giving you added incentives to build a SOCIAL TEAM and run as a group! This year we’re encouraging you to recruit a social team to run and SAVE. Once your group hits 10 members, everyone on the team will earn a $10 refund.



Social Team Benefits

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.) All groups over 10 will also be entered into a raffle with the chance to win prizes such as Official Oakland Running Festival Merchandise and discounted entries for next year.


How Do I Get Involved?

You can create or join a social team during registration. All team members of a social team are linked by their team name and password. The social team program applies to all race distances; so you and your teammates are welcome to all run the same distance, or run different ones as well! Registrants that do not initially register with their group are not be eligible for refunds or discounts. If you have already registered for the race and wish to join a social group, see here for instructions.
