Port of Redwood City
Redwood City, CA
On October 4, 2014, Redwood City will host the 4th Annual OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk. This remains one of the few half marathons on the Peninsula.
The half marathon course is flat, scenic, and largely off-road, perfect for a personal record. Beginning at the Port of Redwood City on Seaport Court, runners join the Bay Trail by Bair Island in the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, continue to a gravel and dirt trail next to Steinberger Slough in Redwood Shores, and return. We are seeking permission for a beautiful new 5K course and hope to have a final decision soon.
Weather is likely to be perfect for runners. Situated midway between San Francisco and San Jose, our location next to San Francisco Bay keeps our climate moderate and comfortable year round. The average high temperature in October is 73° and the average low is 49°.
The OktobeRun Half Marathon is part of the California Half and Full Marathon Series. Some of the highlights of the series include series points awards and finishers’ medals. More information on the series can be found at CalHalfSeries.com.
All proceeds from the race will go to the Redwood City Education Foundation. The RCEF has been working since 1983 to advance and enrich educational opportunities for the 9,200 students of the Redwood City School District. Learn more and donate at: www.rcef.org.
We welcome the Woodside Wildcats Prowl, courtesy of the Woodside High School Foundation! Runners and walkers in this unique race-within-a-race will register and participate in the OktobeRun just like everyone else, but will receive a Wildcats Prowl T-shirt in lieu of the OktobeRun shirt, and be part of the Woodside High School Team.
To sign up online, just register for OktobeRun as usual. When you are asked if you’re intending to sign up for the Wildcats Prowl, just say yes.
