The Sacramento Running Association brings you the new and improved 5th Annual Gold Rush 50K!
The 2017 event will be 50k and a two person relay and we are excited to bring you the ultimate ultra race day experience. The race will start at Salmon Falls Boat Launch and ends in Historic Folsom, primarily following the rugged and historic gold miner routes on mostly single-track trails, all within the scenic Sierra foothills.
The Gold Rush 50K is a great training run for a summer 100-miler or 100k, and is also a great way for first-timers to dip their toes into the ultra scene.
About the Event Organizer
Local time: 7:08 AM
The Sacramento Running Association (SRA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established in 1982 with the mission of bringing world class running events to the Sacramento area. Since then the success of its flagship event, the California International Marathon, has enabled the SRA to expand its mission to encourage people of all ages to develop a healthy lifestyle through running. As a part of this mission, in 2003 the SRA Board unanimously voted to include allocating a portion of the SRA events’ proceeds to “improving and developing regional running venues.” SRA funds have been used to make American River Parkway running-related improvements and support the creation of the Willow Hill Cross Country Course and Granite Park Cross Country Course (both of which are open to the public).
