Join us this year for the annual Midway Shelter run and walk. This event takes place this year at the Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal in Alameda on Bay Farm Island and supports a great cause. The run will take you along the beautiful shoreline of Bay Farm Island and is a flat out and back with views of San Francisco and the Alameda Main Island. We have added a longer 10k option for this year and both runs will start at 8:30am 

The Kids run for 12 and under will be a 1/2 mile course. Kids run will start at 9:45am. Look for the kids run category at registration.

There is plenty of parking at the Ferry terminal and we will have snacks and drinks when the race is over.
