Race Morning BART Busing
BART doesn’t run early enough to get runners to the Biofreeze Berkeley Half Marathon Main Start Line on time, but don’t fret! The Biofreeze Berkeley Half Marathon offers early morning bus service from five Bay Area BART stations, so runners can forget the hassle of driving and focus on the race.
Buses transport runners from the following BART stations to our Start Line at the following times on Race Morning: Walnut Creek at 5:45 am; Fremont at 5:25 am; El Cerrito Plaza at 6:10 am; MacArthur at 6:10 am; and Civic Center at 5:40 am (Buses pick up on Grove at Market St.).
Free parking is available at each location. 10K runners may take the BART Buses to the Main Start Line and then take our free runner shuttles to the 10K Start Line. BART will be running normally after the race, so you may buy a BART ticket after the race, hop on, and head home. The BART Bus ticket does not include return BART ticket fare.
You must reserve your spot in advance. On race morning, you will not need a ticket to board the BART bus because your name will be on the list for bus loading.
