Description

DESCRIPTION

AFC Academy Girls 03 soccer are joining with the Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders to host a 5K fundraiser to help support the team trip to the Las Vegas Players Showcase in March. Come have fun, get some exercise and help send these kids on their way.

We will meet at Adams Point, Lake Merritt, just off Bellevue Ave., Oakland on January 27 and run at 9:00am.

LMJS Information

The distance offered at these races is a 5K (once around the Lake). 10k and 15k also offered- if desired- please get in touch with the organizer.

Participation ribbons are given to all runners and place ribbons are awarded to the top runners, both male and female in ten year age groups. Additional prizes by Ocho Candy. All those interested in running, whether beginner, walker, jogger, or competitive racer, are welcome to join this run (or any of the LMJS monthly runs).

Kids Races

Bring the kids to the Fourth Sunday races. The (free) Kids Race will start at 8:40 a.m. The Kids Race is intended for the younger kids, toddlers to first graders, as the distance is just 100 yards. Volunteers will supervise the race so that parents and spectators can cheer the kids on. Each child will receive a LMJS logo'ed ribbon. At 8:50 a.m. we hold the Youth Race. The Youth Race is for older kids, ages 9 to 12, and will take place on the street, Bellevue, and will be about 1/2 mile. (This is in lieu of running the 5k for those who prefer a shorter distance.)

When and where

All of LMJS Fourth Sunday runs begin at 9:00 a.m. at Adams Point, just before the Sailboat House, rain or shine. Please note if you park on Bellevue, there is a $5 fee. Please do not enter Bellevue from the wrong way to avoid paying for parking. There is ample (and on Sundays free) street parking elsewhere.
