Event Art & Merchandise

Since the inaugural 408K in 2012, Run Local has worked with local artists to capture the spirit of San José and produce unique pieces for our community to enjoy.

In 2024, we’re thrilled to welcome Local Color and Alyssa Wigant to the Run Local family!

The uniquely designed medal can only be earned, so make sure you register today!

"I've always appreciated that there isn't just one landmark to symbolize San José, because it allows us to define what makes this city special to us based on our own observations. I hope this medal acts a reminder to go outside, look around, and really take in the surroundings of our city."
