Victory Half Marathon/10k/5k
RUN ALONG THE SCENIC SAN FRANCISCO BAY TRAIL!
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!
