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. In 2020 alone we welcomed tens of thousands of runners to our finish lines, both live and virtually, and we raised approximately $100,000 for charities such as the Pat Tillman Foundation, Running for a Better Oakland, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation, Team No Kid Hungry, and many more.

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.
