Join us for the inaugural

Bank of Marin Running Festival

The Bank of Marin Running Festival will bring together Dean Karnazes and runners of all ages and abilities along a scenic, rolling hill course on the back country roads of Novato.  Run the Half-Marathon, grab your co-workers or friends for the Corporate Challenge Half Marathon Relay, run the 10K, support our Veterans with the Reset Go 5K run, or Run Like a Girl with the 1 mile for girls 12 or younger.It is all about promoting healthy lifestyles, team-building, and community engagement!

All races start & finish at Indian Valley College.

Nestled in the shadows of the Marin hills and countryside, you will be rewarded with incredible views, hometown supporters, wild horses, and a memorable experience!

Run the half marathon. Find a friend and share the half marathon as a relay team. Opt for the 10K or 5K. Run Like a Girl with the 1 mile for girls 12 or younger.
