The Robby Poblete Foundation is thrilled to present the 2017 Vallejo Waterfront Weekend 5K Glo Run on October 7, 2017. The run starts with a ferry ride @ 6:30pm from the Vallejo Waterfront Terminal to the newly built Mare Island Terminal, then a point-to-point course around Vallejo’s historical naval base. Participants will finish the last mile running past the Mare Island Causeway Bridge with scenic views of the downtown and waterfront areas.

Whaleboat Regatta


Our Half Marathon course will take you along the historic naval yard on the east side of the island, to the highest point of Mare Island for beautiful views of the Bay, Mt. Diablo, and Mt. Tamalpais. It will then run you down by the Old Admiral housing and out to the Mare Island portion of the San Pablo Bay trail on the western side of the island. The 10K will take you by the Old Admiral housing and the San Pablo Bay Trail before heading to the finish. The 5K race will run by the Old Admiral housing before heading to the finish. All courses are still going through the approval process and some tweaks may be made, but the overall feel for the race should not alter too much. Parts of the run through the San Pablo Bay Trail are unpaved.
