OktobeRun offers runners of all levels and passion one of the few road half marathons on the Peninsula coupled with a 5K fun run perfect for students and their families.
The OktobeRun half marathon course is flat, scenic, and largely off-road, perfect for a personal record. Beginning in booming downtown Redwood City, the out and back course circles the saltwater marina at One Marina, joins the Bay Trail next to Bair Island in the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and after some more roads to Redwood Shores, continues to a beautiful gravel and dirt trail next to Steinberger Slough. Almost half the course is next to the water or wildlife refuge at One Marina, Bair Island, or Steinberger Slough. The OktobeRun 5K follows the same course but turns around at the One Marina community next to Redwood Creek.
Weather is ususally 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°.
