Registration is open. We are working closely with Alameda Point and the city to bring this fantastic event back to the Island! Stay tuned for more information and updated course maps as we get closer to race day.
We are excited to bring the September Half back to Alameda after 3 years away. The Bank of Marin’s Island Running Festival will include a Half Marathon, 10k (6.2 miles), 5k (3.2 miles), and family fun run (1 mile), so there is a distance for every participant.
The various distances will highlight several beautiful areas around the island from Alameda point and it’s many new running trails, the estuary shoreline, USS Hornet and a beautiful venue at the finish.
The event will benefit two great charities: The Alameda Education Foundation and Alameda Meals on Wheels. We hope that all of Alameda comes out to enjoy a day of running, walking, and supporting the community at this marquee Island event.
We are projecting 3,000 runners and another 2,000 spectators that will visit the island and we can’t wait to share all of the running trails, great views and local business on and around the city. The Bank of Marin Island Running Festival will create a 2-day festival of events that will include an expo around Health and Wellness as well as community involvement including local schools, business, charities, and fundraising.
Join us in creating a successful weekend that will showcase the beauty of the island and our fantastic running community.
Bring your friends, your family and your work colleagues and Come Run the Island!
