There is something special going on across the Bay Bridge in Oakland and inviting you to come and experience it.

If you just finished running the San Francisco Marathon or Half Marathon, there is a 50% OFF coupon in your digital goodie bag.

THAT’S right, 50%. There is a link that directs you to the Oakland Marathon web site, fill out a short survey and BOOM. You are set to run the March 2012 event for under $40.

If you are looking for more of a reason, let me share this with you. Everyone that I know that has run Oakland in the past couple years, has LOVED it. Here are some other course highlights:

  • Scenic Course, Lake Merrit, Jack London Square, Temescal, Montclair
  • Finish Line strecth includes a run past the Historic Fox Theatre
  • Unique Finisher’s Medals (not your typical coaster medal)
  • Raiderettes at the Finish Line
  • Greenlight Apparel – environmentally focused finishers shirts
  • Voted the Best Endurance Challenge in the East Bay
  • 98% approval rating from participants

Oh, and you get to run through a gate of fire. 

Here is my (almost PR) 2010 recap and some FUN photos from my Incredible 2011 race.
