Shell/MEF Run Success

Oct 30, 2017 02:45PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

The 15th Annual Shell/MEF 5K/10K Run for Education on October 1 brought in $75,000 for the Martinez Education Foundation (MEF) and drew a record number of participants.  On a beautiful fall morning, 848 people either ran or walked the 5K-route through downtown Martinez or ran the 10K route that went up to the hills on Carquinez Scenic Drive. Loren Baker of Martinez came in first in the men’s 10K category, and Dara Flowers of Martinez came in first in the women’s category. John Hill of Pleasant Hill, a Shell Martinez Refinery senior engineer, won the men’s 5K competition, and Lisa Allan from Martinez won the women’s event.

More than 250 people volunteered to make the event a success, including dozens of students from Martinez Junior High School, Alhambra High School, DVC, Martinez area CERT volunteers, and many Shell refinery employees. The Alhambra High marching band performed in the downtown plaza before the race started. Twenty-eight corporate sponsors donated to this year’s event. Shell Martinez Refinery General Manager Tom Rizzo called the Run for Education a gratifying event. Thank you to all runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors for making this a huge success.
