MEF Run for Education

All ages are welcome to join the run, help us reach our goal!

Racing to $1 Million!

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2020
Location: Mainstreet Plaza downtown Martinez
Run Hotline: (925) 313-5562

The Run for Education is our signature fundraiser for the Martinez Education Foundation. The race began in 2003 as a 5K race with 200 participants and has grown into a 5K and 10K race that hosted more than 750 in 2019. This year we are Running to A Million with the goal of reaching $1,000,000 raised from the Run since 2003.

All ages are welcome to join the run – from those only a few months old to those over eighty! Many cheers are heard during the special one block race for the under six crowd, with each runner in this age group receiving their own award. And participation from students, parents, and alumni from all Martinez schools makes this a truly memorable community and family event. Prizes are awarded for the overall winners as well as for various age groups.

If you can’t run in the race, there are many other ways to support the event with our volunteer opportunities.

All the proceeds from entry fees, sponsorships, as well as money raised from the ever-popular Family Fun Night, go to the Martinez Unified School District schools in the form of grants.

Check back in June for the Registration Form and all other details!
