We launched in 2012 wanting to grow the running community in the Bay Area, create incredibly fun and fast events as well as impact local organizations doing good work in the areas we call home.

At least 5% of every dollar spent in the Run Local universe goes to partner organizations making a positive impact on our local communities. You are encouraged to further this contribution whenever and wherever you interact with us.

Run Local Groups

The Run Local – Bay Area Series consists of five impactful running events in the San Francisco Bay Area. We believe in creating special experiences for our runners and partners. This includes adopting meaningful charity organizations, connecting with the local community, and making the events fun. From San Jose to the East Bay to San Francisco – We Run the Bay.

The Run Local – Bay Area Group Sales Programs provides groups of 10 or more with special savings and experiences at each of our events (are you a company? click here to learn more about our Corporate Challenge Program). Whether you’re a local running group, a community organization or just a bunch of friends coming together for a fun weekend (bachelor or bachelorette party anyone?) we got you covered.
