Come join us for a fast and fun day of running to kick off th Holidays. New for this year, we have moved the event up a few weeks. We loved the idea of "kicking off the Holidays", but after 3 years we realized that the event date was too close to Thanksgiving and all of the Turkey trot events out there. So, this year the date is Nov 5th!
The race will still start and end at the Harbor Bay Fitness Club on Bay Farm Island. You can view club information here: http://harborbayclub.com/. The course is a mostly flat dirt and paved trail that features a beautiful view of the San Francisco skyline and bay bridge. It is a perfect course for the seasoned runner or if this is your first run/walk event.
After the run there will be music, food and various vendors located within the recreation area of the Harbor Bay Club. this race is sure to be a great fitness event followed by a fun celebration for both participants and spectators.
Event details and schedule
The 5k race starts at 9am and the kids run will start at 10:00am, both on the east side of the Harbor Bay Club along the water. The event venue is a private club, so there is no parking located on site. there is street parking all around the club on Packet Landing Road, Veterans Court or at the grandview Pavilion located on Island drive, and just a short walk to the race start. The address for Harbor Bay Club is 200 Pocket Landing Road, Alameda, ca 94501. We recommend you carpool if possible.
Please allow yourself adequate time to park, pick up your race number, chip, and T-shirt before the 9am start.
We will be donating a portion of the registration to the Multiple Myeloma Foundation, in honor of Robert Ashbaker, a long time Alameda resident who passed last year. You can read about MM at http://www.themmrf.org/
There will be awards 3 deep based on 10 year age group catagories and every participant will receive a race t-shirt IF YOU REGISTER BEFORE Nov 1st, 2017
