Martinez Run for Education

September 27, 2020 Martinez, CA 94553 US

Welcome to the 18th Annual MRC/MEF Run for Education, Virtual Style! We may not be able to have 800 walkers and runners gather in our Martinez Plaza to begin this event together, but we won’t let COVID-19 keep us from supporting the students in the Martinez Unified School District! Through our virtual run, friends and family across the country will now be able to join the fun, while hundreds of local participants will receive the 2020 MRC/MEF Run for Education Official Race T-Shirt.

Since 2003 we have raised over $925,000 for the Martinez schools - Help us Run to 1 Million!

Our Story

The MRC-MEF Run for Education started in the fall of 2003 and has steadily grown every year. Entrance fees and corporate sponsorships aggregate to make the Run for Education the largest annual fundraiser for the Martinez Education Foundation, with the Martinez Refining Company as 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.


Participating in a virtual race is a great way to keep your mind and body healthy. Be sure to follow CDC and state and local guidelines to prevent the spread of infection diseases while participating.
