Here we go! Let’s take back 2020 one step at a time!

Our local public schools need our support now more than ever. Why not lace up those running shoes and enjoy Lafayette for all it has to offer!

Traditionally held the third Sunday in October, the Lafayette Res Run for Education has been reimagined for 2020 and will be held over the two weeks spanning October 16-31, 2020.

Join us for one of four races: 5k, 10k, or 2 mile walk/run along the same route as previous events*; or ~new this year~ the 2.7 mile Lafayette Reservoir Run/Walk Challenge along the paved trail of the Lafayette Reservoir**.

Registration for all races is $25**. Race packets that include our traditional long sleeve t-shirt and race bib will be available starting October 14.

Support your local public school. Sign up now!
You will be sent a confirmation email with information regarding the Race Joy App which we will use to track times and post results. This is a virtual race but a physical run!

Special thanks to Zoonie’s Candy Shop! The first 100 students registered for the run from each school will receive a gift certificate for a free 1/4 lb of bulk candy!

Many thanks to our presenting sponsor Oakwood Athletic Club; our partner, the City of Lafayette; our Zero Waste recycling sponsor Republic Services and our Course Sponsors, Ford Timing and EBMUD. Our long sleeve t-shirts are sponsored by: Keith Gronbach, DDS, East Bay Oral Surgery.

Beneficiaries of the event are the local public schools and the services and programs of the Lafayette Chamber.

Sign up now for this virtual race, physical run. You can also make a donation directly to your school.

We hope to see you in Lafayette, running in support of our schools, over the weeks spanning October 16-31, 2020.

*The 5k, 10k, and 2mile walk/run course will be marked along the sidewalk on the South side of Mt. Diablo Blvd. Roads will NOT be closed for runners. Please see maps for course.
