Ohlone Greenway Fun Fest

Saturday, May 31, 2014 (All day)
The City is planning to host the Ohlone Greenway Fun Day on Saturday, May 31, 2014 to celebrate the recent renovation of the Ohlone Greenway, the 3.7 mile multi-use trail that runs the length of El Cerrito. 

There is also a fun-run and ride:
The course starts at the El Cerrito Plaza BART Station “Willow Street” parking lot and finish at the El Cerrito DMV Parking lot @ Manila Avenue. All routes are along the Ohlone Greenway in El Cerrito. Route distances are approximate. The 5k route has 18 road intersection crossings. The 1 mile route has 6 road intersection crossings. Participants should use caution at all crossings.
*Riders (approx 5km) will begin at 9:15am – All riders must wear a helmet.
*Runners (approx 5km route) will begin at 9:45am
*Walkers (approx 1mile route) will begin at 10:00 am
This is a fun event, not a race. All abilities welcome!
Register here now to ride, run or walk! Same-day registration begins at 8:45 am.
The first 50 people to register will receive a free t-shirt.

If you’re not going to do the fun run, walk or ride, just come on by the Festival between 9:30am – 1pm!

The event will encourage people of all ages to ride, jog, walk or roll along the Greenway and include activities like a scavenger hunt and bicycle obstacle course. There will also be a celebration at the finish line with music by DJ worldOnelove, informational tables about biking, walking, gardening and other tips for healthy living, food trucks and more! 

To ensure the event is safe and fun for all participants, the City is looking for volunteers to assist on the day. Individuals and groups are welcome. Youth are welcome to volunteer if accompanied by an adult.
