Runners follow an out-and-back route at Oakland’s Bay Bridge Half, which starts and finishes near the intersection of 3rd Street and Adeline in West Oakland. From there, the route follows 3rd, Mandela Parkway and 7th Street before turning onto Maritime Street, which you’ll run up to Burma Road. After the turn onto Burma, you’ll run onto the Bay Bridge Trail, which carries you across the bridge and over to Yerba Buena Island, taking in views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz off in the distance along the way. After you make the turn, you’ll head back across the bridge, back to the finish line at 3rd and Adeline.
