What's Happening in Training

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.

Sign Up for Granite Head Trails and Ales race: Online registration for Granite Head Trail and Ales is still open and is filling up fast. As a bonus you will get to partake in a great post race atmosphere with fajitas and Yolo Brewing serving their best beer. The race has two scenic course options: a Short Course; 6.6 miles and a Long Course; 11.2 miles.
