About the Race
This event is run entirely inside the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, set in the beautiful foothills of Coloma along the south fork of the American River. This is the site at which gold was discovered in 1848, igniting the gold rush and leading to California’s quick rise to statehood.
All of the courses are a mix of very appealing single track dirt trails and a few paved areas. There are some moderately technical ascents and descents with a lot of switchbacks. There are also some sections of rolling hills and other places where the course is completely flat. With the addition of scenic views and a variety of wildlife, there is plenty to make this run very enjoyable and interesting.
The race is held rain or shine. Be aware that it can be very cold in Coloma in the morning. No strollers are allowed in the race.
The time limit for this event is 4.5 hours.
