The Goleta Education Foundation’s Lemon Run features competitive 10K and 5K races and a 1K Family Fun Run. Multi-race discounts are available, and as always, our Fun Run is FREE! The flat and fast course on the Obern Trail bike path begins and ends at Goleta Beach, where you'll find family-friendly activities like an art table, blender bike, and face painting, and once again, excellent fare from Wahoo's Fish Tacos. Bring your whole family!
Our 10K is a Grand Prix event, and our 5K is a Jr. Grand Prix event. The race is on!
Proceeds from the Goleta Education Foundation Lemon Run will benefit the elementary students in the nine schools in the Goleta Valley. Register now and show your support for our local schools!
