Lake Merritt Joggers & Striders 

LMJS Races




Lake Merritt Joggers & Striders (LMJS) puts on several different runs for the community.

Our Fourth Sunday Runs around Lake Merritt are a long-standing tradition.  The distances offered at these races are a 5K (once around the Lake), a 10K (two times around), and 15K (three times around). 

In February, there is the Couples Relay, a two person relay with a Valentine theme. 

In May we host the Tilden Tough Ten Miler in Berkeley. This race was established in 1987 as an alternative for more serious unners to the “Bay to Breakers.” It has grown in popularity over the years and now regularly “sells out” every year, with the maximum number allowed by our permit of 300 runners. 

In June we host the challenging Woodmonster Cross Country Trail Race a 9 mile hilly, cross-country loop on dirt trails in Oakland.
