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).
**PLEASE NOTE: The September race will be held on the 3rd Sunday, September 17 due to a regional boat race on the following weekend.

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 runners 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 Trail Race, an 8.4 mile hilly, cross-country loop on dirt trails in Oakland.
