 2015 Registration to Open Soon

We’re busy finalizing our new course and will open registration for the 2015 Redwood City OktobeRun as soon as we can.  We’ll announce it here and on our Facebook page, so keep checking back.

New Course in 2015

The 2015 Redwood City OktobeRun will be on Saturday, October 24.  We’ve moved the start and finish back to downtown Redwood City, with a new and improved location on Bradford Street in front of the Redwood City School District office!  This is closer to exiting downtown, meaning more running next to the water and less on city streets.  And we should have more room for pre- and post-race activities.  Most of the scenic half marathon course is the same as in previous years.

Although we won’t be running at the port this year, we’re still proud that the Port of Redwood City is one of our partners.  We encourage all runners and their families to visit PortFest, again after the race on October 3.  PortFest is a free community festival to promote the recreational opportunities in and around the Port of Redwood City.

2014 Results

Click here to find your results. From your individual results page, you can share your result on Facebook and Twitter, and you can watch your finish video.

Everyone who finished the race on such a hot day deserves a huge congratulations!  Thank you to all our runners.  And special thanks to all our devoted volunteers who gave so much of themselves so our runners could have the best experience possible.  And pray for a cold wave next year.

Back by popular demand:  All half marathon finishers receive a 13.1 car magnet with the OktobeRun logo.  Show the world what you accomplished! (They’re first come, first served, but we expect to have enough for all half marathon finishers).


Countdown to Race Day:

5th Annual Redwood City OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5k

Steinberger Slough

On October 24, 2015, Redwood City will host the 5th Annual Redwood City OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5K. 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 in vibrant downtown Redwood City, runners join the Bay Trail next to 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.  The 5K follows the same course but turns around near the One Marina community next to Redwood Creek.

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°.

California Half Marathon Series

California Half and Full Marathon Series

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.
