As part of the World War II home front efforts, hundreds of ships were built here, including 142 Victory ships (the Red Oak Victory is still there and can be visited). It was also the site of the Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant, built in 1930 and by 1942 converted to assemble jeeps, tanks and other military vehicles. Thousands of dedicated women and men worked to create the means necessary to ensure our victory. It's from their spirit of hard work and determination that we've named this race and hope to inspire excellence in all our runners.
Starting at the historic Craneway Pavilion, all distances will run out along the San Francisco Bay Trail with breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, and Mt. Tamalpais. The courses are flat and fast making them great for beginners or runners looking to set a personal record. The half marathon distance will have pacers thanks to the TriValley Running Club, make sure to check out the pacer page for more details!
7:30 AM: HALF HIKERS
8:00 AM: HALF MARATHON
8:15 AM: 10K
8:30 AM: 5K
For half marathon participants who wish to hike the course and take more than 4.5 hours, we will offer a "Hiker Division" start at 7:30 am. Those starting at 7:30 should carry water as the first and second aid stations might not be 100% up and running, depending on the hikers speed. Hiker starts will not be eligible to win the race or for age group awards, but will be listed as official finishers in the Hiker Division and will still receive finisher medals.
All three courses are out and back along the shoreline. Races begin at the Craneway Pavilion running south around the Richmond Marina Bay, onto the San Francisco Bay Trail, turning around to finish back at the Craneway Pavilion.
All courses are on either paved or gravel trails.
