Oakland Running Festival Practice Run

Every year the Oakland Running Festival plans a couple of practice runs along the race course. This is the first one for this year's race. It's a lot of fun and is free and they provide water/gatorade stops. Please RSVP at the link below (not just on meet up) so they know who is planning to attend and can be sure to have enough supplies for all. The run is 10 miles (Rockridge BART to Fruitvale BART). I will be adding on an extra 4 and likely ending at 19th street BART. Let me know if you'd like to join me for the extra miles!

    OK, looking at things, seems the options are 8.6 miles (stop at Fruitvale BART), 12 miles (stop at 19th St BART) or 15.2 miles (RT all the way to Rockridge BART).
    In case you're curious and/or the handouts don't materialize, see this file:

    A few things:
    We will meet at 7:55 at the base of the escalator at Rockridge BART for easy identification of the group. The actual run begins at 8am at See Jane Run down the street. Feel free to go straight there if you'd prefer. SJR has offered to hold people's things as you go on the run if you'd like to leave anything with them. Directions for the run will be provided by the ORF staff the morning of the run- they even laminated them last year :)

    Happy running to all!

    For those wishing to run together (or just to say hi at the start), let's plan to gather at the bottom of the escalator at Rockridge BART that morning. Looking forward to seeing you all there :)

    Brunch at Cactus Taqueria back by Rockridge BART at the end?
