4th of July R.A.C.E. to Benefit Midway Shelter

Support Midway Shelter for homeless women and Children in Alameda!

Don’t want to run? Come walk with us and show your support. All ages welcome!

We are excited to bring this Island tradition back to kick off the longest parade in the country.

The only endurance event on the island where the streets are completely closed, the course is mostly flat, fast and will feature food, drink and music at the end for 2022!

After 2 years away, the Alameda Parade and the 5k are back in 2022. The 5K run (3.1 mile) and walk takes you through beautiful Alameda starting at 9:00AM, just before the historic 4th of July Parade. This run benefits the Midway Shelter of Alameda. We are working closely with the City so that we can bring a safe and fun experience for both runners and spectators.

The race starts at 1420 Park Street in front of Lauren’s Closet and follows the Alameda parade route ending at Haight and Webster. The scenic course is completely closed to traffic as you run past spectators waiting for the parade to start. your run will finish just past the parade judging booth. This year we are going to have access to Haight St., (current location of the Tues/Sat farmers market.) Stick around and enjoy post race water, Gatorade hydration, plenty of snacks, and beer donated from our local breweries!

Register before June 26th to receive a T-shirt, and for 2022 ALL runners will receive a custom finisher medal!
