Private Label Bay Bridge Brew
Old Kan Beer, Oakland

Our friend and owner of Commis, Chef James Syhabout, holds the only Michelin star (he has 2!) in the East Bay. We’ve partnered to create a custom brew via his Old Kan Brewery that’ll be unveiled on race day.

Smile, We Have Tacos!
COOL!NARIA, by Chef Avramow

What would a Cinco de Mayo event be without Tacos!? As locals, we know the best tacos in the Town, so prepare to feast once you cross the finish line.

Enjoy The Journey

Join us as we make history across the brand-new Bay Bridge for the first Half Marathon ever. We’ll depart from West Oakland and initiate a wide, fast and fun few miles before arriving at the entrance to the bridge path. As we proceed toward Treasure Island, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the ever-evolving San Francisco Skyline. On the return, you’ll have a front row seat to Oakland’s infamous cranes, town-scape and beautiful rolling hills.

COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT COMING IN MARCH!

Rest & Relax

Home to an inspiring local food movement, top sports teams, a thriving arts culture and so much more, Oakland, California is booming. Take it all in from the convenience of Oakland Marriott City Center, a modern hotel that mirrors its dynamic downtown surroundings. Their refined guest rooms ooze urban cool, boasting perks like cutting-edge technology and spa-quality rain showers. One of America's most exciting cities is at your fingertips at the Oakland Marriott.

There’s only one first time

We’ve been on this journey for nearly a year with the mission to bring a one-of-a-kind, fresh experience to our hometown. Run the Bay Bridge, celebrate at our Cinco de Mayo party and revel in making history.

 

We’re Going Cup-less

Cup-less racing is good for you, the environment and the Bay. We’ll be traveling over the beautiful San Francisco Bay for over 50% of the race, so we’ve partnered with HydraPak and their SpeedCup, along with NUUN, for a zero-waste 13.1 miles. Every runner will receive a custom SpeedCup during our packet pick-up launch events.
