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.

Pending any health guidelines, 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.

Unity In Diversity: The 2021 Res Run t-shirt design reflects Lafayette’s first mural, “Unity In Diversity,” which was painted on the eastern wall of the building located at the northwest corner of Mt. Diablo Blvd. and Oak Hill Road this past summer. The approximately 650 square foot mural was created by youth from Lamorinda and Oakland facilitated by Three Thirty Three Arts. Lamorinda resident Lara Dutto collaborated and brought to life Lafayette’s first public mural, one that feels welcoming to all cultures and colors. Three Thirty Three Arts designed the concept that is first and foremost a beautiful and inviting work of art, but one that a diverse population of people would appreciate. The design features flowers, Monarch butterflies, a panther and dragon. Watch a video about the mural at the bottom of this page. Learn more in press release here.
