Registration for the 38th annual Couples Relay, on February 28, 2016 will open in December of 2015.  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. There will be many goodies and prize drawings for all runners (must be present to win). The first 200 teams registered will receive a great race premium!

Please note: Unfortunately, we are unable to host our regular monthly kids races at this event.

Advanced registration is $20 per team for LMJS members, $25 per team for non-members, and $15 per team for youth teams.  Please register in advance to save time and money and help our race day run smoothly.

A portion of the 2015 race proceeds supported Girls on the Run of the Bay Area a non-profit that strives to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.   They hold two, 10-week, programs a year in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo counties that conclude with a 5k race through Golden Gate Park.  They envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Thanks to our 2015 sponsors:
