Get Ready for the  OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5K, October 4, 2014!
OktobeRun raises funds for our schools, while providing Redwood City with a unique community event. This year OktobeRun partners with the Port of Redwood City, so both the Half Marathon and 5K courses follow the beautiful San Francisco Bay Trail.  For serious runners, the flat, scenic Half Marathon course makes it perfect for a new personal best. The 5K provides a fun, family-friendly opportunity to get fit through running and walking. Students, teachers, staff, and parents are all encouraged to sign on, and school teams are welcome! More information and registration at www.oktoberun.com.
 
After the finish line head to PortFest for more fun...
After the race, stay for PortFest, a free community festival celebrating the Port of Redwood City with boat rides, fun activities for all ages, and great food and beverages. More details at www.RWCPortFest.com.
