Welcome to WRC East Bay! 💗

In the Fall of 2022 a few women runners in Oakland started talking about how we could come together to create a women’s run group in the East Bay. Women’s Run Club East Bay evolved out of that! This is a living website to share some thinking about who we are, how to join, and how we may grow in community.

Mission & Values

Our mission is to foster a fun, accessible, come-as-you-are community for women and non-binary runners rooted in the East Bay. We want our club to uplift values of inclusion, local community engagement, & celebrating each other as athletes and people.


  • Our club is free to join. After you sign up we’ll add you to our Slack workspace where we coordinate and communicate, and to our mailing list where we send one email monthly.
  • We host weekday runs in Oakland and weekend runs at rotating locations around the East Bay. Once you join please do make an effort to come on out and join us in person!
  • Our Slack forum is active with planning ad hoc meet-ups, discussing training, postpartum/injury recovery journeys, volunteering/community engagement opportunities, gear swap & more!

Thank you and let’s do this!🦄
