Sunday’s 17th Annual Shell/MEF Run for Education on September 29, 2019 brought in $92,000 for the Martinez Education Foundation while drawing 760 runners and walkers who competed in the 5k or 10k events.

On a beautiful fall morning, the participants either ran or walked the 5k route through downtown Martinez, while 77 runners took the 10k route that went up to the hills on Carquinez Scenic Drive. Loren Baker, of Martinez came in first in the men’s 10k category, and Natalia Skuba of Pleasant Hill came in first in the women’s category. Lev Afonine, of Martinez, won the men’s 5k competition, and Katie Karst, also from Martinez won the women’s event.

More than 250 people volunteered to make the event a success, including dozens of students from Martinez Junior High School, Alhambra High School, CERT volunteers and many Shell refinery employees. The Alhambra High marching band performed in the downtown plaza before the race started.

This year’s Run was also supported by 62 corporate sponsors that donated to the event. Thank you to all runners, walkers, volunteers and sponsors for making this a huge success!!!
