We are planning a full day of activities for serious runners, casual walkers, parents and caregivers pushing strollers, adults, and children alike. Come for The Run and stay for the fun: live bands, kids’ zone, school choirs, food, refreshing drinks, and more to celebrate Excellence in Education in the San Ramon Valley USD!
The Run for Education is a tradition in the San Ramon Valley spanning 40 years and is the primary fundraising activity for SRVEF and the community event in the San Ramon Valley that includes participants, volunteers and spectators from all 35 San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) schools, representing the communities of Alamo, Danville and San Ramon. The Run for Education is also the largest run that supports education in Northern California.

WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?
Every registration automatically generates a fundraising page.
By sharing their personal page with their family and friends, every participant can use their fundraising page to raise money that directly support their school.
All revenue raised via personal fundraising pages will be split as follows:
- 70% of Net donations will be returned to the school of choice
- 30% of Net donations will be used by SRVEF to fund district initiatives.
Note: Donation processing fees are subtracted from total donations for the purpose of calculating revenue sharing.
All funds raised on fundraising team pledge pages not affiliated with SRVUSD schools will be considered donations to SRVEF. SRVEF funds District-wide initiatives that benefit all students.
The 5K and 10K will both be timed. After the race, you will be able to print a certificate.
