The Run for Education, formerly “Primo’s Run,” has been a tradition in the San Ramon Valley for 35 years. Our 10K, 5K Run/Walk, Friendship Run and Mini Run are the primary fund-raising activities for the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and promotes education in our community in partnership with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.  Together with our 35 affiliates, we raise more than 7 million dollars a year to support our underfunded schools.
