Support BOTR

BOTR youth are running in the Oakland Running Festival!

BOTR youth are running with Running for a Better Oakland on Sunday April 2nd in the Oakland Running Festival.

We have youth running in the Bank of the West 5K beginning at 7:30am.

We also have youth running in the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon beginning at 9:10am.

All Oakland Running Festival races will begin and end at Eastshore Park near Lake Merritt.  Come join us and cheer our youth on.
