The Oakland Triathlon Festival is all about the incredible triathlon community we have in Northern California. The history of Oakland is symbolic and the Oak Tree (strength and endurance) represents a triathlete perfectly, which makes this event a natural fit for many years to come! Our goal is to showcase the beautiful City of Oakland, create fundraising/giving to all the Oakland sports programs and encompass all our fellow endurance athletes around the country. Come join us in creating the largest west coast urban triathlon, featuring Sprint and Olympic distances for new and experienced endurance athletes.
