The annual Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders Couples Relay is a two person relay with each team member running one 5K lap around fast, flat Lake Merritt. It's lots of fun with age group awards combinging the ages of the two person teams. There will be many goodies from race sponsors on site along with our traditional banana racing bread.
