2013 ORFIn 2013 Todd Lloyd ran in the running festival raising awareness and $3,000 for NorCal CarciNet Community.  Click here to read more about his run. Every year we have grown our team, in 2019 we had 125 participate in the event, running, walking or just enjoying the day.


 Our team needs runners and volunteers to help raise awareness of this disease.

It started in 2013 with one man - and one vision - to wear a NorCal CarciNET shirt at the Oakland Running Festival and raise awareness of NETs, a disease that his friend and neighbor was fighting. From one zebra in a sea of 10,000 we have grown and have had over 100 participants since 2017. In 2019 we placed 5 runners in the top 5 of their age/gender category including a Top 10 overall finisher. 

March 21, 2020 - We need volunteers to help staff expo day for the Oakland Running Festival-- Many Shifts are Available -- The running festival runs on volunteers - if you have time on Saturday, please help us fill our volunteer commitment. 

March 22, 2020 - 5k, half marathon, team relay and full marathon. 

Runners will each receive NorCal CarciNET / Oakland Running Festival T-shirts, and some extra goodies in their NorCal CarciNET goodie bag as well as a shirt from the running festival.
