  • Farm to Fork Fun Run: Tuesday, September 20th at 6:00pm. Join us, along with Jen Kistler-McCoy from Sac Running Tours as she leads us on a tour focusing on Sacramento’s rebirth as the Farm to Fork capitol and destination for art of all kinds- including murals and street art. Post-run, we encourage everyone to visit local restaurant Chicago Fire and participate in their Farm to Fork menu.
  • Urban Cow Half Marathon - Half Marathon assessment: Sunday, October 2nd - We will be using this event as your halfway assessment. We will have a special VIP area with snacks and private porta potties for all current Fleet Feet Trainees. Register soon, though, as this race usually sells out. We highly recommend using this race as a tune-up to the marathon, but a separate 13 mile workout will also be provided if you don't want to race the Urban Cow.
