Here's how things are looking at the Lake. If you have selfies from your run, we'd love to add them here.

This message was shared through the e-bulletin, a monthly publication to members. 

Dear LMJS family and friends,

The violent deaths of African Americans George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others have been horrifying. Our country needs systemic changes to ensure fairness for African Americans in all areas of life.

We condemn racism and support justice and equity for African Americans and all people of color. Our club, founded in 1977, has always welcomed anyone regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, income, or running ability. But with the recent events and hard discussions happening around the country, we are now committing to working towards anti-racism and equity in our society and promoting greater inclusion of black runners and walkers in our club.

Following Ahmaud Arbery’s death, we’ve heard black runners share their stories of harassment and their fears for personal safety when going out for a run. Part of our charge, therefore, is to make running safer for all.

We will work with our parent affiliate Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), other running and fitness organizations, other community partners, and club members to develop concrete plans for change. If you are interested in helping with this effort, or would like to share your ideas, please respond to this email or contact a board member.

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.  

We will continue to donate to Black organizations in the Bay Area with the proceeds from our future Virtual races.



Coronavirus Announcement

Dear LMJS Club Members and Visitors to the website,


Due to the recent orders related to the coronavirus epidemic issued by various government and health agencies, we have decided to cancel or postpone all of our group events through the end of June. All those who preregistered for events that have not already started will receive a refund via PayPal for their fees. 


We urge everyone to follow the recommended guidelines to minimize the spread of the virus by avoiding unnecessary group gatherings and practicing “social distancing” while interacting with others.


We continue to assess the current guidelines and update our Events Calendar when it is safe to reopen group activities. Thank you for your understanding and please follow governmental medical advice and stay healthy!

Best Regards,

LMJS Board & Volunteers
