Alameda 10-Mile Race on Aug. 28

Sun Staff Reports

Corrigan Sports, the team behind the Oakland Marathon, is putting on a 10-mile race in Alameda, Saturday, Aug. 28.

The path is a flat and fast trek that will be a safe, fun and unique event along the water in Alameda. The course will follow the Bay Trail path along the water, cruising through Crab Cove and a turnaround just south of Crown Memorial State Beach. Participants will then head back toward Alameda Point where they will end at the original starting point.

The race will begin at 6:30 a.m. at 2100 Ferry Point.

Parking will be available at two lots for the event. Event organizers ask drivers use Willie Stargell Avenue to enter and exit Alameda Point. Take Midway or Tower Avenue to Monarch Street and enter the lot.

Corrigan has reached out to Bike Walk Alameda to bring awareness to the group and help encourage donations to the organization. In addition, they have requested volunteers to help them pass out flyers to the running and biking community to make them aware of this event.

The event organizers are also looking for volunteers on race day. They are seeking individuals to help with course monitoring, registration set up and cleanup after the race.

Corrigan has partnered with several local organizations to help conduct the event. Sponsors include East Bay Regional Park District, Hangar 1 Vodka, Bay Trail, USS Hornet Museum, Chuck Corica Park and GU Energy.

Participants will receive a 10-Miler Armour T-shirt, a finisher medal, a bib and post-race treats.

Medical staff personnel will be present at the event. A medical station will be located near the finish line as well as at the water stop along the course.

The event costs $80 to sign up and all ages are welcome. For more information or to sign up for the race, visit Prospective volunteers can also sign up by visiting the website.
