We will meet at Arthur Mac's in the Temescal neighborhood, run either a ~5k or ~5 miler through the paths of Mountain View Cemetery aka the burial site of Mac Dre, then return for drinks and pizza/snacks (vegan friendly) at the beer garden.
~5 miles (if Cemetery is open) :
The meeting time is at 7pm and we usually start the run at 7:10pm. Cemetery hours are subject to change, and so, if you plan on running through the cemetery, consider your pace. This route involves a substantial incline. (Note: Oakland Sunset Time -- 8:23pm.)
While the route is mostly lit, we recommend bringing headlamps or flashlights especially if you go into the cemetery. We will hand out glow bands before the run to help increase your visibility.
Like all runs, we will do our best to prevent people from getting lost (verbal directions are provided beforehand) and we are very flexible when it comes to pace and distance. All levels of running and drinking experience are welcome!
Beer Garden Details:
Arthur Mac's Tap and Snack is located 1/10 mile from MacArthur BART station and has street parking. Street parking can be limited so please make an effort to arrive early if you are driving. Like anywhere in Oakland, do not leave personal items of ANY value in your car.
What are people drinking at Arthur Mac's?
While the goal of this group is to have fun, safety is our top priority. Please take precaution when participating in these runs - wear bright colors when running at night, always be aware of your surroundings, and do not drink and drive. Again, we strive for safety, but the organizers of this meetup are not held liable for anything that happens. If you bring a guest, you assume full liability for their participation.
