Join Bay Breeze Half Marathon
What could be more romantic than a fast and scenic 5K, 10K or half marathon by the bay?
Compared to many of the other races staged by the locally-based Brazen Racing group — which hosts road and trail races around the San Francisco Bay Area throughout the year — the Bay Breeze Half Marathon, 10K and 5K is aptly named, the organizers say, as the course is definitely a “breeze” compared to most of its other, hillier events.
All race distances start and finish at the San Leandro Marina Park! Whether you are a frequent race winner or a first-time runner/walker, you've got a lot to look forward to. All participants will enjoy a mostly-flat, easy bayside trail that rarely strays more than a few feet from water. A perfect course for those looking to set a personal record!
All three courses are out and back along the shoreline. Races begin in San Leandro Marina Park and proceed south along the shoreline, into the Hayward Regional Shoreline, turn around and come back to the Marina Park. All courses are on either paved or gravel trails and begin/finish on 80-100 yards of grassy field.
The race starts and finishes at the San Leandro Marina Park, a small 30-acre park that lies alongside the shoreline overlooking the San Francisco Bay, and hugs the shoreline for the entire race route. From there, runners follow southward along the shore, all the way down to the turnaround point just north of the San Mateo Bridge. Once runners hit the turn, they then head back along the exact route they’ve just run.

As with all of our races, aid stations will be fully stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc. Aid Stations course: 5K: 1, 10K: 3, 1/2 Marathon: 5. Aid station locations are shown on maps above. Those needing water more frequently are encouraged to carry a water bottle or hydration pack.
All runners will receive custom finisher medals and custom shirts (cotton and tech shirts available).
The half marathon will start at 8:00 am and the course will have a time limit of 4.5 hours. Runners must reach the 4th aid station (mile 10) by 11:30 am (20+ minute per mile pace).
There are two very small lots close to the start/finish area. There is also a lot of public parking in the area circled in yellow in the below picture. Do not park in the golf course lots or in spots reserved for boats and please pay attention to all signage to avoid any other "no-parking" zones.
