Dear LMJS Members and Friends,

We hope you and all those close to you are safe, healthy, and active during the pandemic. We are proud to have a running club like LMJS to help keep us stay connected and engaged and provide grants/donations to support our community’s non-profits, including food banks, youth-run programs, and racial equity organizations during these difficult times. While members and friends are doing activities separated from each other, we are still moving forward and together as LMJS.

Our Board would like to offer all Members and New Members relief for the annual membership fee. We hope these temporary sliding scale fee choices, effective February 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022, will be beneficial:

  • Individual Level fee choices are $2.50, $5.00, $10.00, and $20.00
  • Family Level fee choices are $2.50, $5.00, $15.00, and $30.00
  • New Members will have the same choices for Individual or Family levels. Everyone is encouraged to join or renew.

Thank you for continuing your Membership and supporting our LMJS Mission and Vision.

LMJS Community Service

As part of our community service, LMJS supports our local food banks and other organizations that align with the LMJS mission through monetary donations, generated by our races and training programs.  Especially during this time of the Covid pandemic, we see the continued need to support the food banks in our communities. Through your support and donations, LMJS Races has donated to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, Solano and Contra Costa Food Bank, and other community organizations.
