The 2020 T-Shirt Design

This year we thank Betsy Streeter for the t-shirt design! Betsy Streeter is a cartoonist and illustrator and longtime Lafayette resident. Her work has been seen in such places as the Smithsonian Astrophysics Observatory’s traveling exhibit on black holes, and on the wall of Paul Giamatti’s character’s office in the movie San Andreas. In the 1990s she created the syndicated single panel feature Brainwaves, panels from which are still seen worldwide by license through CartoonStock.com.

Betsy is currently at work on an illustrated history of the bicycle, and at the start of the 2020 lockdown she created a comic entitled Sloth and Manatee that you can read on her Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/betsystreeter) or via her email list at tinyletter.com/betsystreeter. Visit her website at http://betsystreeter.com for her cartoons, artwork, merch, and publications – and whatever else she gets into.

 
 
A bit about the design – the row of runners is inspired by one of Jay’s Grateful Dead t-shirts with a row of socially-distanced bears dancing across – and of course then I (Betsy Streeter) had to add in a bit of tie dye too – and the view of the water and signature horizon in the lettering is about the sense of peace and refuge many people get from seeing that view during these times, and connecting with nature in general – like a little “window” into that beautiful place. And the color palette is inspired by a sense of tranquility as well.
 
 
 

About Res Run Reimagined!

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. Due to COVID-19, we will be moving our race to a virtual race, over the two weeks spanning October 16-31, 2020 and then extended until Tuesday, November 3!

Join us for one of four races: 5k, 10k, or 2mile walk/run along the same route as previous events*; or the 2.7 mile Reservoir Run/Walk 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 can be picked up during scheduled packet pick up times.

Support your school. You will be sent a confirmation email with information regarding the Race Joy App we will use to track times and post results.

*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.

**Parking and fees are not included in registration price.

Beneficiaries of the event are the local schools and the services and programs of the Chamber. See below for last year’s contributions to our schools!

The Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents, and hundreds of serious runners from throughout the Bay Area. 2020 may look a little different but we are still encouraging participants to compete in a 10k or 5k run or a 2 mile run/walk for fun in Lafayette and/or around the Lafayette Reservoir! Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents are welcome to join in the fun.
