The Chamber of Commerce and the City of Lafayette are co-sponsors of the Lafayette Res Run for Education which is traditionally held on a Sunday in October. Beneficiaries of the event are the local schools and the services and programs of the Chamber. The Run is the city’s most popular “family affair”, involving kids, parents, grandparents, and hundreds of serious runners from throughout the Bay Area. Participants compete in a 10k or 5k Certified Runs and a 2 mile run/walk for fun through downtown Lafayette, around the reservoir (10k only) and back. Sprinters, walkers, the “stroller brigade” and many of Lafayette’s top four legged residents share the streets on that festive Sunday morning.
- 5k Certified Race – flat, “chip” timed course, runners only (NO Dogs or Baby Strollers).
- 10k Certified Race – hilly, “chip” timed course around the reservoir, Dogs on Leash & Baby Strollers OK.
- 2 Miles Run/Walk for Fun – No Timing – Fun Run ONLY, Dogs on Leash & Baby Strollers OK

Edifice: Uncovered reflects the collaboration between Lissa Resnick’s Los Angeles-founded and now San Francisco Bay Area-based No Strings Attached Dance Company and artist Marcia Barrow Taylor. Their work delves into “What’s Inside?”
“Although I have been creating and exhibiting work for more than ten years, my recent endeavor with Art Moves Project has led me into unfamiliar and exciting territory” said Marcia Barrow Taylor. “Edifice: Uncovered is my first site-specific installation and has afforded me an opportunity to add a performance aspect to my art.”
It’s been about a year since the last time we checked on the progress of the Towne Center condominiums in downtown Lafayette across from the BART station and as you can see in the above photo it looks like it’s almost finished. Prices for these KB Home condos range from $659,000 – $1,188,252 and the floor plans are available here.

Daniel Levitin is a musician, producer, preeminent brain scientist, race car driver and astronaut. Umm … mostly. But certainly the first three. He is the best-selling author of ThIs Is Your Brain on Music, Weaponized Lies and The World in Six Songs. He’s been touring the country with a fine and fascinating singer/songwriter called Tom Brosseau, and this evening of conversation and music promises to be a unique treat. It’s unlikely that this show will be webcast, so come on down in person, eh?
The Suggested Donation for this one is $25, and the favor of an RSVP is requested, via email only, please, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
