American River Parkway

If you enjoy walking or running, and can make it to the Sacramento area on Saturday, April 28, come join the American River Parkway Half-Marathon at William Pond Park.  Money goes towards improving the American River Parkway.  There will be two courses for runners and walkers.

*04/26/12 - Registration is closed, but feel free to come cheer the walkers and runners on! 

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Start times:
WALKERS: 7:15 a.m. RUNNERS: 7:45a.m.
5K RACE: 8:00 a.m.  

Welcome Runners and Walkers!
The American River Parkway Half Marathon returns for its sixth year 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!

Both courses feature scenic routes that wind their way through forests of majestic old-growth oaks teeming with wildlife, pass through meadows bursting with golden poppies, and traverse isolated dells and wide open fields carpeted with greenery as far as the eye can see. (Take a look at the side bar and you'll see what we mean!)

And the best part of all is, the race is a fundraising event for the American River Parkway - the nation's longest, continuous wild and scenic riparian parkway in a major metropolitan area - and the jewel of the Sacramento region.
