The Island running festival is a version of the old ARF and will still begin and end on the historic and transformed Alameda Point, with a kids run, 5k, 10k and revamped Half Marathon that will incorporate two loops around the point and utilize many of the new trails that have opened up since the last event. 
The entire festival will take place on the beautiful grass area across from City Hall West, located at 950 West Mall Avenue. We will be bringing back the vendor booths, entertainment, runner awards 3 deep in each age group and the best post race beer selection with pouring from all the local breweries.
