The Run for Education is the signature fundraiser for the Martinez Education Foundation. The race began in 2002 as a 5K race with 200 participants and has grown into an event that has hosted more than 500 runners and walkers.  In 2023, we celebrated the 21st Anniversary of the MRC-MEF Run for Education and raised over $100,000!

All the proceeds from entry fees and sponsorships impact our students directly by being awarded to the Martinez Unified School District schools in the form of grants from MEF.

Results from 2023 are located here.
