Along the Sacramento River the Half Marathon Runners will be crossing three bridges: The Sundial Bridge, The Ribbon Bridge, The Diestelhorst Bridge. The runners will Start out crossing the Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge, and go north on paved paths in park surroundings most of the way, until they reach the Ribbon Bridge where they cross the Sacramento River and go south until they reach Middle Creek trail, which is an out and back, with a return to the River Trail. Once back on the river trail the runners cross back on the Diestelhorst Bridge to the north side of the River. The runners then continue back to the Sundial Bridge where they cross back to the south side and the Start / Finish.
Besides the half marathon there is also a 10 K, which also goes along the Sacramento River, just less distance and a 2 mile run / walk for younger and older, who do not want the longer distances. Having the multiple distances makes it a very family friendly event.
The half marathon and the 10 K has been certified with American Track and Field Association, so for those of you, who needs a certified distance, this is another good reason to run this particular race.
Last year we added electronic timing, through individual tracking on your race bib, and as everybody liked it, we have kept it this year. This accounts for the slight increase in the fee for participating this year, where we absorb the the rest of the cost.
PLEASE NOTE : IF YOU SIGN UP AFTER SEPTEMBER 4TH 2020, YOU MAY NOT GET A SHIRT
