Oakland Running Festival Marathon Reviews

Review

Great support at the end but lifeless in the first few miles. Killer hill but is mostly flat.

Hill train.

Review

The climb the first 10.5 miles was not as bad as it looks on the elevation chart. Running up the Oakland hills was nice and it had a great view at the top. The start of the downhill was a little steep. The locals seemed to set-up their own water stations giving out bottles of water. Churches and restaurants also set-up their own aid stations. Friendly and encouraging, felt like a small-town marathon. I will do it again next year. Well organized at the start line and well-attended finish area. It begins and ends at a park next to Lake Merritt.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

There was plenty of street parking near the staging area. Just be aware of road closures.

Review

Did not like the course. A very steep downhill. Runs through unattractive areas. Pot holes. Locals not friendly.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Run San Francisco and not Oakland. Safer, cleaner and much prettier


1 / 5 Stars
