The LMJS Couples Relay is a two person relay with each team member running one 5K lap around Lake Merritt. Teams can be comprised of any combination of genders (on female/male teams the female runner will run the first leg). There are prizes for winners in each age division plus oldest and youngest team. Lots of goodies and prize drawings for all runners (must be present to win). The first 200 teams registered receive a great race premium!

We were pleased to have Running for a Better Oakland as the 2014 nonprofit beneficiary. Running for a Better Oakland (RBO) is a non-profit organization that encourages 5th – 12th grade Oakland students to develop healthy lifestyles through running. By building confidence, setting goals, providing training and encouragement, RBO will give students the values for achievement and hard work that they can draw on for all areas of their lives.
