Registration is now open for the Alameda Running Festival, Oct. 29 – 30, 2016, at beautiful Alameda Point.  Youth (and their families) are encouraged to participate in this inaugural event that focuses on the fun and health benefits of running.

The Festival incorporates a Family Fun Run on Saturday and a half marathon, 10k, and 5k run/walk on Sunday. The event will start and finish in Alameda Point and highlight several beautiful areas around the island.  This is a two-day festival of events that includes an expo around health and wellness as well as community involvement including local schools, businesses, charities and fundraising.
