2015 American River Parkway Half Marathon Race Recap
"...after mile 7, we were in shade most of the way back."
2014 American River Parkway Half Marathon Race Recap
"The first problem was that there weren’t any bag pipers that usually start the race by walking through the runners. This year it was a high school drum team. They did fine, but they were no bagpipers."

Race Information

The Parkway Half Marathon has been an annual spring-time tradition for runners and walkers in the Sacramento region.  This flat, fast, and shady course travels along the American River Parkway through old-growth Oak forests, lush meadows, and pristine riparian habitat, making it a perfect race for a PR, and a scenic journey for everyone!

The Parkway Half is more than just a race. It is the first, and for nearly a decade, the ONLY race event to donate 100% of its proceeds to benefit the American River Parkway.
