OktobeRun Half Marathon
Race Technical Difficulty Score (RTDS) = 2
2018 rc.oktoberun is open to runners of all levels. From competitive runners on our USA Track & Field certified half marathon, to a 5K fun run perfect for kids and their families.
The rc.oktoberun half marathon course is flat, partly off-road, and perfect for a personal record. Beginning in booming downtown Redwood City, the out and back course circles the saltwater marina at One Marina, joins the Bay Trail next to Bair Island in the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and after some more roads to Redwood Shores, continues to a beautiful gravel and dirt trail next to Steinberger Slough. Almost half the course is next to the water or wildlife refuge at One Marina, Bair Island, or Steinberger Slough. The rc.oktoberun 5K follows the same course, but turns around at the One Marina community next to Redwood Creek.
Weather is usually perfect for runners. Situated midway between San Francisco and San Jose, our location next to San Francisco Bay keeps our climate moderate and comfortable year round. The average high temperature in October is 73° and the average low is 49°.
