Race Information

The American River 5k course is a beautiful combination of bike path and horse trails along the American River. Expect to see the river for much of the race/walk.

It has varied terrain so that it is much more interesting than an all asphalt run/walk and it is a fast course. All proceeds benefit the Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento.
