Event Details
San Jose Earthquakes Community Race

Starting March 1st, you have 20 days to hit 7.4 miles to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of our first MLS Cup title in 2001. 

You can run, walk, or roll (scooter, skate, skateboard, cycle, wheel) the 7.4 miles over the course of the 20 days or you can knock them all out in 1 day. You can run part of it and walk the other part and maybe even cycle another. It's up to you. Have fun with it!

What's different about this race? You'll be separated into five (5) teams with  each team having 2 team captains - 1 current player and 1 alumni player from our legendary 2001 team.  

Each week of the race, your team captains will send an email with an added fun challenge. You can submit entries for the challenges for a chance to win a private group virtual meet & greet with your team captains, presented by Michelb Ultra. 

Team Captain Duos include:

JT Marcinkowski & Zak Ibsen, 

Oswaldo Alanis & Ramiro Corrales, 

Shea Salinas & Jimmy Conrad, 

Tommy Thompson & Troy Dayak

-

If you're not into challenges but you're into fundraising, the highest fundraisers for each team will also receive a prize. 

Every participant registered gets a commemorative t-shirt and medal. 

All profits will go towards getting local youth engaged in new ways through soccer, literacy, and scholarships.

What Are We Racing For?

 With distance learning, students struggle to stay engaged and fall behind in their progress. 


Staying at home has created a more sedentary lifestyle for some. 


As parents lose their jobs, paying for higher education seems more daunting than it already had been for some.


The world has asked our students to adapt without the resources to do so. 

The San Jose Earthquakes Foundation wants to help change that. 


We are partnering with America SCORES Bay Area, CORAL, BAWSI, & BAASST. These organizations are -


1. Engaging students in new ways to help their academic success.

2. Providing a creative outlet for them to express themselves and learn leadershsip and communication skills.

3. Building community, fun, and  fitness even if we’re physically apart.

4. Helping ease concerns about money for higher education.

5. Increasing girls participation & parental support in soccer.


In 2021, let’s bring joy back into our lives on a regular basis. In joining this race, you’ll not only bring joy back into your own life but the lives of the youth in our community.


Ready to raise each other up and race?


Thank you to our sponsors, Frank, Rimerman + Co. LLP, and Sutter Health!
