“The fastest 5K and the toughest 10K in the land”
The Lafayette Reservoir Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents and hundreds of serious runners from all over the Bay Area.
Over 2,500 participants compete in a 10K, 5K or 2 mile race through the heart of downtown Lafayette, around the reservoir and back. Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents share the streets on the last Sunday morning in October. Race times begin at 8:00am and “day of” registration begins at 6:30am.
Enjoy music provided by Stanley Middle School and a pancake breakfast provided by the Lafayette Rotary Club. This event is presented by the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and the City of Lafayette. Our thanks goes out to Sutter Health – Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation and Oakwood Athletic Club of Lafayette. As our Presenting Sponsors, they have made this event possible with most of the proceeds going right back to our local schools.
New Start-Finish Line Location
This year the festivities have moved about a block and a half West to the corner of Mt. Diablo Blvd. and Oak Hill Rd. Registration, activities, breakfast and vendors will all be set up around the intersection.
Healthy Lifestyles Fair
Lamorinda’s health and wellness providers will assemble to meet and serve the community in a free public information and service health fair which will take place as part of this year’s Reservoir Run. This is a perfect opportunity for community members to talk about their health concerns and meet providers that truly care and can assist them in their quest for a healthier life! The fair is part of this year’s Res Run festivities and is located next to registration and the Start-Finish line.
Parking is available at the BART parking lot. Walk down to Mt. Diablo Blvd. and Oak Hill Rd. where all the fun is taking place. Ride your bike and use our Free Bike Valet Parking.
Pre-registration can be done by visiting http://bit.ly/resrun2015. To volunteer go to our online sign up at http://bit.ly/res-run-volunteer-2015
Beneficiaries of the event are the local schools and the services and programs of the Chamber. There are medals for all top participants in the 5K and 10K. The two mile fun run is a non-timed event. New this year is a family bike ride. The bike ride is not a race. It has been added as another fun family activity with help from our friends at bikelafayette and Sustainable Lafayette. There will also be a bike safety rodeo and free valet bike parking.
TRICK or TREAT STREET
And don’t miss the fun on Friday, October 30th. For a fun, safe Halloween event, children and their parents are invited to Trick-or-Treat on Mt. Diablo Blvd. TRICK or TREAT STREET will take place at 4:00pm in boo-tiful Downtown Lafayette. A great place to begin the walk is our wonderful Lafayette Library and Learning Center. You can park at the Library and begin the walk. All participating businesses will display a poster and have balloons at their door. Trick or Treating is for children 9 and under.
