5K Run/Walk • 1 Mile Family Fun Run • Fitness Festival

The San Leandro Sports Foundation in partnership with the City of San Leandro, the San Leandro Unified School District and the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce is proud to host our 3rd annual RUN FOR THE SCHOOLS 5K Run/Walk, 1Mile Family Fun Run, and Fitness Festival to benefit school health and fitness programs in San Leandro. The event will take place at San Leandro Marina Park on Sunday, May 6th, 2012 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Budget cuts continue to strip vital programs from our classrooms. “This event provides our schools the opportunity to raise funds for health, safety, fitness, and outdoor education programs at their school sites,” explains Martin Capron, President of the San Leandro Sports Foundation. “It also allows the middle school and high school sports teams to raise much needed funds to keep their sports programs alive.” The free Fitness Fair is open to everyone and provides the community with many health, fitness and safety resources.

This event has been designed so that everyone, from every “walk of life” can participate. Fun, fitness and health is the general theme of the event. The day includes a 5K fun, fast, furious run/walk and a 1Mile family run/walk round the beautiful San Leandro Marina, and the grand re-opening celebration of the newly renovated Marina Parcourse.

Race registration is available online or download the forms here. For more information, contact Martin Capron at (510) 895-1980, or Evelyn Gonzalez at with any questions.
