Running is My High is a large community event hosted by Native American Health Center that includes a 5k/10k run/walk around Lake Merritt in downtown Oakland and celebrates wellness, physical and mental health, nutrition, and social connection. This year, NAHC would like to honor our sister clinics, to acknowledge the vital role that Community Health Centers play in the Health Care landscape. If you are not a runner/walker, you are still welcomed to join us to enjoy traditional Native American drumming and dancing, outreach tables, and a children's activity area.
Hayward 5k Running Events
Join us 8:30 AM- 12 PM at the Edoff Memorial Bandstand for Crisis Support Services of Alameda Countys 9th Annual Healing Hearts: 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention. This all-ages event will help raise awareness to the tragedy of suicide, help reduce the stigma associated with depression and mental illness, educate the community about available services, support local suicide prevention programs, and provide a safe place to heal for those who have lost loved ones to suicide as a community.
All courses include challenging (but view-rewarding) hills to go up and down. We recommend walking the up-hill sections and saving your energy for the flat and downs! Except for the start/finish on a grassy field and a couple of small paved sections (less than 10%), the courses run on fire trails (with a section of single track for the Half Marathon).
Every year the Campolindo Track and Field and Cross Country programs sponsor the Moraga 4th of July "Fun Run" event. These races kick off many of the activities that are part of the Town of Moraga's 4th of July celebration. The net proceeds from these runs again will be going to the Campolindo High School track and cross country teams.
The starting line will be located on Moraga Road adjacent to the Moraga Garden Center, at 1400 Moraga Road. Same day packet picks up and the assembly area for the race will be in the parking lot next to the Moraga Garden Center. There is ample parking throughout the shopping centre but please avoid parking in spaces near the start of the race. Suggested parking is near Safeway, MacCaulous, Loards ice cream or UPS store. A kiddie run is scheduled before the main run and we'd like to avoid having cars in the parking lot near the Kiddie run.
