The Lafayette Chamber and the City of Lafayette are co-sponsors of the Lafayette Res Run for Education which is traditionally held on a Sunday in October. Pending any health guidelines, the 2022 Lafayette Res Run for Education will be held Sunday, October 23, 2022 with the Reservoir Challenge held October 13-22, 2022.
The Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents, and hundreds of serious runners from throughout the Bay Area. Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents are welcome to join in the fun.
Back by popular demand, from its introduction in 2020, you can now register for the Reservoir Challenge – the virtual race which “runs” around the 2.7-mile paved trail of the Lafayette Reservoir October 13-22, 2022. Please note, the Reservoir Challenge is not an option on Sunday, October 23 as the Reservoir will be closed for all but the 10K runners. The Reservoir Challenge is great opportunity to safely walk or run the Reservoir on your own, perhaps beating your time from last year.

On race day, s-p-a-c-e o-u-t, do not crowd together at the starting line. Racers can line up the entire block from Oak Hill Road to Moraga Road. Remember, only the 10k and 5k are timed races, and timing starts only after you cross the starting line.

Please NO headphones/ear buds. We need you to be aware of your surroundings at all times.
No skateboards, scooters, bikes or similar … it’s for our safety!

The Lafayette Chamber is proud and delighted to announce that the 2021 Res Run for Education gave $42,568.75 direct to our school’s organizations.
This is an exciting new record and we couldn’t be more proud of our community efforts to raise these funds for our local schools. Congratulations to all! And WOW both Lafayette and Burton Valley exceeded $9000 proving that school size isn’t always a determining factor.
Here is the school beneficiary check breakdown:
Burton Valley, $9,140.34
Happy Valley, $7,320.84
Thank you to everyone who contributed in making this such a successful event. We hope to see you all in 2022!
