The 44th edition of the Jed Smith Ultra Classic is held on a certified course (BQ) that is nearly identical with the record-setting course used for the 2011 World Masters Championship Marathon.
Runners cross the Guy West Bridge at the Sacramento State University campus and Watt Bridge at Watt Avenue at the other end of the 4.85 mile loop. The fast and mostly flat course follows a paved bike path and some wide dirt trails along the beautiful American River Parkway.
This is the right event for all runners with a lot of support along the course. Come just to finish and enjoy the beautiful area along the American River or to aim for your PR or any regional or national record.
