Description

The Shell-MEF Run For Education started in the fall of 2002 and has steadily grown every year.  Originally a 5K event, in 2012 a 10K course was added to the run.  Although many people choose to run the course, a large majority walk the 5K course as they enjoy the stroll through downtown Martinez.  The 10K course extends out Carquinez Scenic Drive past the historical cemeteries and along the river for some sweeping vistas.  All ages participate in the run, and prizes are awarded for the overall winners as well as for various age groups.  Entrance fees and corporate sponsorships aggregate to make the Run For Education the largest annual fundraiser for the Martinez Education Foundation, with Shell the primary sponsor.  In addition, over the years the Run for Education has become a much anticipated community event that demonstrates tremendous local support for all schools of the Martinez Unified School District.
