Shell-MEF Run For Education

Sep 03, 2014 02:59PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

      The Shell-Martinez Education Foundation Run For Education will be held at 8:30am on Sunday, October 5, in downtown Martinez. As always, there will be an opportunity to carbo-load before the big event on Saturday, October 4, at a Pasta Feed sponsored by the Kiwanis and Martinez Rotary to raise additional funds for Martinez schools. The Pasta Feed will be held at the Shell Clubhouse at 1635 Pacheco Boulevard in Martinez from 6 to 8pm. There will be games and activities for kids from 6-7pm. Pasta Feed tickets are only $15 and kids under 6 eat free! All are welcome to come to the Pasta Feed even if they can’t participate in the run. 

     Originally a 5K event in 2012, a 10K course was added to the run. Although many people choose to run the course, a majority enjoy the stroll through Martinez. The 10K course extends out Carquinez Scenic Road, past the historical cemeteries and along the river for some sweeping vistas. All ages participate in the run, and prizes are awarded to overall winners as well as various age groups. Entrance fees and corporate sponsorships aggregate to make the Run For Education the largest annual fundraiser for the Martinez Education Foundation (MEF), with Shell the primary sponsor. Over the last twenty years, MEF has donated over two million dollars to Martinez schools. For more information, to register for the run, or to make a donation, please go to the MEF website at www.martinezedfoundation.com.
