PAST EVENTS:

4TH ANNUAL COLUSA CIRCLE 5K 

Thanks to everyone who attended the fourth annual Colusa Circle 5K! This year's race beneficiary was Sogorea Te' Land Trust, an urban Indigenous women-led land trust that facilitates the return of Indigenous land to Indigenous people. With more than 120 registered runners, event registrations totaled $3,000, which ZCEB matched dollar-for-dollar for a total of $6,000 for Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. The funds raised will contribute to their Rematriate the Land Fund, which supports growing medicine gardens, creating emergency response hubs, and distributing fresh food to elders, among many other important initiatives.

3RD ANNUAL (VIRTUAL) COLUSA CIRCLE 5K​: 

Due to COVID restrictions, this year's 3rd Annual Colusa Circle 5k was a virtual race, which raised $2500 for this year's race beneficiary Urban Tilth.

Urban Tilth hires and trains local residents to cultivate agriculture in west Contra Costa County to help our community build a more sustainable, healthy, and just food system. They use 7 school and community gardens and small urban farms to teach and employ community members to grow, distribute, cook, and consume thousands of pounds of local produce each year, to create a more equitable and just food system within a healthier and more self-sufficient community.

Thank you to our amazing group of participants who kept the racing spirit alive desite the pandemic! We look forward to racing with you again next year!

On December 1st, 2019, Zip Code East Bay and the Colusa Circle Merchants Association celebrated the season + Colusa Circle's new electricity! The Colusa Circle Tree Lighting brought together over 250 members of the community to enjoy music, free hot chocolate and the lighting of the circle's big oak tree.
