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.
Beneficiaries of the event are the local schools and the services and programs of the Chamber.
The Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents, and hundreds of serious runners from throughout the Bay Area. Participants compete in a 10k or 5k certified runs and a 2 mile run/walk for fun through downtown Lafayette, around the reservoir (10k only) and back.

Don’t miss the live music by the Stanley Middle School Orchestra and the Healthy Lifestyles Fair!
