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. 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 2021 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.

Race packets that include our traditional long sleeve t-shirt and race bib will be available mid October.

Support your school. Sign up now!
