Lafayette Res Run returns to benefit local schools, Oct. 22

Plans are in place for the annual Lafayette Res Run for Education, which will be held on Sunday, Oct. 22 in person through downtown Lafayette and virtually, through the Reservoir Challenge, Oct. 12-21. Options include the traditional 2-mile fun run/walk, 5K along Mt. Diablo Boulevard, or the 10K route which takes you around the Lafayette Reservoir. Participants of the Reservoir Challenge "run" around the 2.7-mile paved trail of the Lafayette Reservoir.
According to information provided by the Chamber, the Reservoir Challenge is "a great opportunity to safely walk or run the Reservoir on your own, perhaps beating your time from last year! It's also a great option if you just want the commemorative shirt," but it is not an option on Sunday, Oct. 22 as the Reservoir will be closed for the 10K runners.
"The Res Run is one of our favorite community events," said Lafayette Chamber of Commerce Communications Director Holly Sonne. "It delivers dollars to each Lafayette public school - Lafayette Elementary, Springhill Elementary, Burton Valley Elementary, Happy Valley Elementary, Stanley Middle School, and Acalanes High School through their PTA/PTO - plus Campolindo High School in Moraga and Miramonte High School in Orinda receive funds through MEF and ONE, allowing them to build community, host special events, and appreciate teachers, all while promoting health and wellness." A Healthy Lifestyles Fair will be located on Lafayette Circle adjacent to La Fiesta Square from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. on race day.
There is also a Race-Before-the-Race, which is an additional fundraising opportunity for the Lafayette School District. It takes place three-fold: The Lafayette School District school with the most registrations by Sept. 30 will receive an additional $500 donation. The school with the most registrations in total will also receive an additional $500 donation. The school with the most registrations compared to last year will also receive an additional $500 beneficiary check.
"All ages and abilities are welcome! Kids love to run the streets, which are only closed twice a year in Lafayette (for the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival and for the Res Run)," Sonne said. "Serious runners raise their challenge level enduring the unique 10K around the Lafayette Reservoir."
