Course information & Maps
This beautiful flat course runs through Alameda, California with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay Area. Just steps from San Francisco, this run gives you views of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, downtown San Francisco and the Bay.
Half Marathon Course
The race starts at
Washington Park (on Eighth St. between Central Ave.) in Alameda and runs down 8th Street towards Shoreline. You will go all the way down Shoreline drive and wind your way to Towata Park where you will find a water station. This will give you a little pick-me up at mile 2.5. You will then head over the pedestrian bridge onto the other half of Alameda. The run then loops to the east where you run with the inlet water on your left. Once you exit onto Harbor Parkway, you will have a couple of miles of a long stretch which is a great place to have friends meet you and cheer you on. It is easily accessible for cars and where you may want to see a friendly face. You will hit a water stop at mile 4 and 6 and continue into the business park sections through mile 7. Once you hit mile 8 you will be rewarded with some of the most magnificent views of downtown San Francisco and the San Francisco Bay. You will loop back around, back onto the pedestrian bridge for a 2.5 mile easy run home to the finish in Crown Beach Memorial Park. The half marathoners and 5K'rs will be split about 1 mile from the finish, so watch for signs and runners from behind so you don't block the faster racers.
The start and finish are just a 1/4 mile from each other so no shuttle is required. We end with a fun, champagne and chocolate fueled, celebration expo overlooking the San Francisco Bay. The weather is usually mild with a little wind off the bay. Bring an extra shirt if you want to hang out for a while.
The 5K course shares the same course as the half. We turn around 1.3 miles down Shoreline, and hop up onto the path for the run back towards the finish. We will approach the park at around the 3 miles mark and hop on the path which takes you through Crown Memorial Park.
At the end of the 5K and Half Marathon course, both races share the same path. This path is the last 200 ft of the race and the most critical for anyone who is trying to finish strong, break a PR or win. If you are a 5K runner/walker (who takes over 50 minutes to finish), please make sure you follow the signs and stay to the right of the course so faster half marathon runners can pass unobstructed. We have changed the course by putting cones down the center of this path to ensure all half marathoners will be able to finish strong. Please respect other runners and share the path.
The kids race is for fun and will not be timed. Kids as young as 1 and as old as 12 have run this race. It is approximately 1 mile long (give or take). It starts at Washington Park and runs through the Crown Memorial Park and ends at the finish with other runners. We will have course marshals on the course to make sure kids stay on track. Adults are welcome to run with their kids, and we encourage it with the very young. All kids will get a race bib, T-shirt, Jelly Belly Sport Beans at the finish and a Medal.
There are 7 water stops on the half marathon course at miles 1.2, 2.75,4, 6, 8, 10.25 and 12 and one on the 5K course at mile 1.2. We will serve water and GU hydration at all 7 stops. You will also find basic medical supplies and staff to help if you need it. At water stop number 6 and 10 we will have GU gels.
You will find bathrooms at the start line, the finish line and roughly every 2 miles on the course. You will also find public rest rooms along the course. Notably there are a few public port-o-potties down Shoreline drive and one right as you approach Broadway around mile 2.5. You will find a real bathroom where North Loop hits Harbor Parkway around mile 7 or 8 and another one a bit further down near the Alameda Ferry Terminal.
Bike & Bag Check
There will be a bike and bag check for you at the Alameda race. The bike check will be at Crown Memorial Park (the finish line) and open from 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. You can leave your bike at a secured bike area where it will be guarded. You race number will serve as your claim check. The bag check will be at the start. Look for signs. We will take your bags to the finish where you will pick them up. The finish line is just 50 yards from the start.
Have your friends join the Luna Chix at
Towata park for a cheering station. This is a great location for friends and family for the Half Marathon as they will see you at mile 2.75 and then again at mile 10.5. Bring some noise makers. The best way to arrive at Towata Park is via Fernside Drive however you must be on foot. Cars will not be allowed into the area.
Newton running shoes are our official prize for the 1st place winners of the half marathon and 5K (age and overall). Newton Running shoes are built with Action/ReactionTM technology, which reduces impact, returns energy, and propels you forward so you can run faster, farther, forever. So shake hands with natural form running. You'll be glad you met.
We will hold a closing ceremony at 11:00 am. Prizes will be awarded on-site to the top 3 overall and age category winners of the half marathon and 5K events. There are no prizes for the kids race.
If you are unable to stay for the awards ceremony, prizes can be claimed at your local See Jane Run store from 1-2 weeks following the race. We can also mail your prize for the cost of shipping. Please download the following

See Jane Win Challenge
Winning isn't only about crossing that finish line first. Sometimes it's about finding sanity, sharing time with friends, conquering self doubt, accomplishing a PR or just enjoying some good chocolate. Whatever it is for you, we know that when you step up to the start line, you have already won. We hope you are all joining us for the See Jane Run Half Marathon and 5K in 2014.
There's another way to win as well: When you know that every ounce of effort you put in is also supporting a great cause. I'm writing with the hope you'll join me in the See Jane Win Challenge, a fun opportunity to make your race count for something bigger than you, and all I ask is that you bring a dollar to the race. That's right, one dollar. Then I want you to run faster than me.
Every time I bend over to lace up my shoes, or pay for a race, I feel immense gratitude that I am able to do these things. I’ve watched family and friends suffer from physical disabilities, so I will never take for granted the ability to stand upright, to walk or to run. Running is a blessed gift. It isn’t always easy, it isn’t always fun, but it is always rewarding.
To that end, I want to use my running to give back to the charities supported by See Jane Run in 2014. At each of the four See Jane Run races, I will compete to “win” the 5K. For those who know me, you know I have never won a race. Not even close! This year I will donate one dollar for every person who beats me in the See Jane Run 5K races. And I challenge you to donate one dollar if I beat you. Please bring your one dollar bill to the race. I am going to run my heart out, for me, for you and for the charities we support. I hope you can take a few minutes to check out our charities that need our help in 2014 and do what you can. Things are tough for everyone right now. The economy has taken its toll on our friends, our family and on the causes we hold dear. One dollar from each of us will go a long way.
This event can't happen without the generosity of volunteers like you! Please help us support this amazing and inspirational event. If you know anyone else who wants to help, be sure to have them sign up, or if you have a group who wants to make some money for their organization,
contact us. Or sign up to volunteer here.
