Walkers' Half Marathon - 7:15AM • Runner's Half Marathon - 7:45AM • 5K - 8:00AM • Kids' Otter Dash 9AM
The American River Parkway Half Marathon returns for its 12th anniversary and continues its distinction as the only half marathon in the world for both runners and walkers! Not just one course for both disciplines mind you. We're talkin' two separate, fully supported, USATF certified courses - one just for runners and one just for walkers!
The Parkway Half Marathon also features nearly two dozen bands along the courses (about a dozen on each), ice-cold water and Gatorade at each of the eight aid stations on each course (most of any half marathon), a full-color tech-fiber commemorative race jersey, a bling-worthy full-color 5-inch two-sided spinner medal for every half marathon finisher (with option to personalize), a great lunch for all finishers featuring a meat or vegan wrap, fruit, cookie and beverage, and tons of fun things for the kids and family to do while waiting for their loved one to finish!
The Kids' 1K Otter Dash for the young and young and heart! After the race, kids can take a picture with the Parkway Otter mascot!
All in all, a great day for the entire family, training group, race team and best friends forever!
