We Run Richmond 5K

Sunday August 9th, 2020

Official Website


The We Run Richmond 5K is an annual community event, typically held at Nicholl park in Richmond, where we love to see the entire community come together for a good cause. This year we are taking the event virtual! That is right, run/walk your favorite route and participate virtually while still supporting the cause!

On our 4th annual We run Richmond 5k we'll connect via IG live at 10:00 am and kick off the festivities together as you run where you are.

The goal of this event is to raise enough money to purchase at least 200 backpacks filled with school supplies so that we can provide elementary aged students in Richmond with the tools they need to feel confident and prepared in the classroom. We will be working with elementary schools throughout Richmond to identify which students would benefit most from the backpacks we provide i.e students who would otherwise not have a backpack at all or students with old/damaged backpacks.

Not only that...our even bigger goal is to provide 10 college bound students with $1,000 scholarships all raised through community support!

The "We Run Richmond 5K" is presented by Moving Forward, a group of volunteer community members. This is a non competitive 5K Fun Run/Walk. We are also proud to announce our fiscal sponsorship from Urban Tilth. 

The fun takes place Sunday, August 9th 2020 beginning at 10 a.m. The event kick-off will take place virtually on IG Live at 10am and runners will begin running where they are soon after.


Each 5K registrant will receive the official race day T-shirt and finisher’s medal. That right! This year we will be providing medals for the first time. You don’t want to miss out!

We will host two t-shirt pick up days. August 2nd from 10am-12pm and August 8th 10am-12pm at the front entrance of MLK Park (1300 Virginia Ave. Richmond, CA 94804). We will practice safe social distancing and do our part to ensure the T-shirt/medal pick up is done safely. If you are not able to pick up at either of these times please contact us to coordinate a pick-up/delivery.

Let's keep Richmond Moving Forward!
