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. Due to COVID-19, we will be moving our race to a virtual race, most likely over the two weeks spanning October 16-31, 2020. Please stay tuned for updated information and link to register.
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 Reservoir! Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents are welcome to join in the fun.
Packet Pick-Up: Pickup your pre-assigned bib and t-shirt (only available while supplies last) at the Lafayette Chamber Office, 251 Lafayette Circle, Ste 150. Dates and times for pickup will be posted here closer to event dates.
