The 2014 OktobeRun will be on Saturday, October 4.  We’ve moved the start and finish to the Port of Redwood City on Seaport Court!  Most of the scenic half marathon course is the same as in previous years, except that the first and last miles no longer run through downtown.  We’re proud to announce a brand new and improved 5K course.  Starting at Seaport Court, the course will head out Seaport Blvd to circle beautiful Pacific Shores Center on a 3-mile extension of the Bay Trail.  You can find more course details and maps on the Course tab above.

This year the race will partner with Redwood City PortFest, a free community festival to promote access to the recreational opportunities in and around the Port of Redwood City.

Please note that there will not be a Kolor Run in 2014.

Countdown to Race Day:

4th Annual OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5k Run/Walk

Steinberger Sloughn

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.  And we’re proud to announce a beautiful new 5K course that circles the Pacific Shores Center.

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°.
