The Island Running Festival

Sunday September 24th, 2023

Alameda, CA

Official Website


We are excited to bring the Island running festival back after a 3 year break. All events 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. 


As with all of our events, a portion of our registrations and sponsorships will be donated to two great Alameda charities. Alameda Meals on Wheels and Alameda Education Foundation. you can read more about them from our direct links below:
