Run Your Race, Find Your Strength

Top Reasons to Run the Oaktown Half

Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Oaktown Half as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review, find, and write race reviews!

This is my second year to run the Oaktown Half and I’m so stoked! Here are my top three reasons why you need to run the Oaktown Half.

3. The views

This picture of Lake Merritt I snapped during last year’s Oaktown Half. I love running by any form of water… ocean, lake, river, etc.

2. Free Race Photos

Most people know how expensive professional race photos can be. When a race, such as the Oaktown Half offers free race photos, this is a BIG deal. Here’s a pic of me during last year’s half. (I was five months pregnant.)

1. The Medals

Last year I earned three medals during the Oaktown Half race weekend because I ran both the 5k and the half marathon.

This year, however, I am only running the half marathon, so I’ll only be earning one medal, but it is still super awesome!

There’s more reasons why you should run the Oaktown Half, but I’m going to stop there for now. (Check out Oaktown Race Perks.)

I look forward to sharing my year two race recap of the Oaktown half soon!

Until next time,
