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.

The Run Local Team

What else?

No! We have partnered with Silicon Valley-based training software company, PWR Lab, to provide all users with not only device integration (Garmin, Polar and Suunto), but the ability to simply manual enter your miles for the day and see your progress on the course map and leaderboard.
