Join the Run Local movement and challenge yourself to run 100, 250, 400 or 500 virtual miles this summer from LA’s Santa Monica Pier to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge along California’s idyllic Highway One. Maintain your motivation along the way with custom content, mini-challenges, digital badge awards, and bespoke California swag.  Finally, reward yourself with a hard earned finisher medal upon completion.

You’ll have a three-month challenge window from Monday, June 8 – Labor Day, Monday, September 7 to set and reach your 100, 250, 400 or 500 mile goal!

Who We Are

Run Local is a small business comprised of passionate event directors who live and work throughout our beloved home state of California – the San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley, and Southern California. Since 2010 we’ve produced hundreds of events, large and small. But since February of 2020 we haven’t been able to do what we do best, which is offer a live local running experience to thousands of our loyal community members.

So at least for now, we’re going to do that virtually. Come run or walk with us, safely in your community, while raising money for a wonderful cause. As always, 5% of every dollar spent in the Run Local universe is given to partner organizations making a positive impact on our local communities.

Thanks for joining us.
