The 11th annual Oakland Running Festival has been RESCHEDULED to Sunday, August 30, 2020. Just like the rest of the world, the running community is reacting to the coronavirus pandemic as we receive new information daily. CSE appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding as we must follow the guidelines of the Alameda County Health Department and navigate these unchartered waters to do what is best for our runners and for the city as a whole.

At this time, we are offering current Oakland Running Festival Registrations 3 options: 

If you want to run on Aug 30, 2020 - there is nothing that you need to do on your end. Your registration will automatically be transferred to the new date!


If you cannot run on Aug 30, you can defer your entry until next year’s event to be held on March 21, 2021. 
For a limited time (March 13 @ 9:00 AM to March 15 @ 9:00) we are waiving our normal deferral fees. After March 15th @ 9:00 AM, the regular deferment fee of $25 will be charged.

To complete your deferral, follow these steps: 


Take on our Virtual Challenge and transfer your 2020 race entry into a Virtual Run.  You can run the distance you registered for on your own and claim your race shirt and medal. 

There are 2 ways for you to get your gear:

  1. Packet Pickup: FREE – @ Oakland Marriott in Early May (specific dates & times TBA soon!)
  2. Ship Me My Gear: $10 (Packages to be mailed after April 27 and may take 1-2 weeks to reach your home)

To choose the virtual option, follow these steps NO LATER THAN MARCH 22nd:

  • Log into RunSignup and go to your profile: https://runsignup.com/Profile
  • Under the Upcoming Events section, click MANAGE REGISTRATION next to your Oakland Running Festival Registration
  • Click ADD-ONS tab
  • Select the GO VIRTUAL add-on and choose if you would like to attend packet pick or have your gear shipped
  • If you select the shipping option, you will be prompted to enter your shipping address and pay the shipping fee
  • Click Confirm Payment

Per our policy which every runner agrees to during the online registration process, CSE does not offer registration refunds.


  • If you are part of a CHARITY GROUP runner or member of a CORPORATE WELLNESS TEAM, contact your group’s captain.
  • If you have previously deferred your entry, but now wish to participate in the VIRTUAL RUN or on August 30th, you will receive an email with a link to a special online form. 
  • If you have previously deferred your entry to March 21, 2021, and that remains your desire, no action is required on your part.

It is our hope that these options will satisfy every runner. Our staff has worked diligently with city services and key vendors to avoid canceling this year’s running festival. The day is too important to the Oakland community and we’ve done everything within our means to make it still happen.

The Oakland Running Festival, now running over the Bay Bridge is one of the flattest and fastest courses in the Bay Area. Course records were set for both the Men's and Women's marathon in 2019, our first year on the bridge.  Corrigan Sports makes the process easy from registration to race day, and the people of Oakland make you feel welcome from start to finish. Haven’t run it yet? Well, 2020 is the perfect year to try it out! Experience Oakland’s diversity and beauty with a race that touches all aspects of Oaktown, and finishes with one hella awesome party.
