About The Redwood
The Redwood Half Marathon in Oakland, California is a must-run for any serious runner. Held annually on April 1st, this race will take runners through some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. The route winds along the picturesque redwood trees of Joaquin Miller Park and offers breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. This 13.1 mile course also takes runners alongside Lake Merritt, where they can get an up-close view of one of Oakland’s iconic landmarks and catch glimpses of both old and new architecture throughout the city streets as they go.
April is typically a great time to run this half marathon as it usually brings mild temperatures with warm days and cool nights – perfect running weather! The crowds are always enthusiastic during this event, cheering on participants from start to finish line while offering plenty of support at water stations throughout the course.
What really makes this event special is its focus on sustainability; all proceeds from registration fees are donated to local environmental organizations that work hard to protect these majestic redwoods for generations to come. Participants who sign up early even receive an exclusive eco-friendly t-shirt made out of recycled materials! With all that being said, if you’re looking for an amazing outdoor experience combined with a chance to give back – look no further than Redwood Half Marathon in Oakland!
