Lafayette Res Run for Education
The Lafayette Res Run for Education
The Lafayette Chamber and the City of Lafayette are co-sponsors of the Lafayette Res Run for Education which is traditionally held on a Sunday in October.
The 2022 Lafayette Res Run for Education will be held Sunday, October 23. 5k: 8am, 10k: 8:15am, 2 mile: 8:45am with the Reservoir Challenge “running” October 13-22.
Beneficiaries of the event are the local schools and the services and programs of the Chamber. See below for what we gave back to our schools last year!
The Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents, and hundreds of serious runners from throughout the Bay Area. Join us in 2022 for the 10k, 5k or the 2 mile run/walk for fun! Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents are welcome to join in the fun.
Registration is open until race day, but t-shirts are limited! Race packets that include our traditional long sleeve t-shirt and race bib are available at packet pickup.
- 5k Certified Race – flat, “chip” timed course, runners only (NO Dogs or Baby Strollers). View Lafayette Reservoir Run 5k Map

- 2 Miles Run/Walk for Fun – No Timing – Fun Run ONLY, Dogs on Leash & Baby Strollers OK.
- Lafayette Reservoir Challenge, Oct. 13-22, Lafayette Reservoir
Race Course: 10k: Oak Hill Road to El Nido Ranch Road, around the Lafayette Reservoir and back. 5k or 2 mile DO NOT go around the Lafayette Reservoir.
Reservoir Challenge – Virtual Race: Back by popular demand, from its introduction last year, you can now register for the Reservoir Challenge – the virtual race which “runs” around the 2.7-mile paved trail of the Lafayette Reservoir October 13-22. Please note, the Reservoir Challenge is not an option on Sunday, October 23 as the Reservoir will be closed for the 10K runners. The Reservoir Challenge is great opportunity to safely walk or run the Reservoir on your own, perhaps beating your time from last year.
For Your Safety!
- On race day, s-p-a-c-e o-u-t, do not crowd together at the starting line. Racers can line up the entire block from Oak Hill Road to Moraga Road. Remember, only the 10k and 5k are timed races, and timing starts only after you cross the starting line.
- NO Dogs or Baby Strollers in the 5K race.
- Please NO headphones/ear buds. We need you to be aware of your surroundings at all times.
- No skateboards, scooters, bikes or similar … it’s for our safety!
