Race Information

Half Marathon, Relay and 5K runners "breakout" at the start on the Johnny Cash Bridge in the shadow of Folsom Prison. Half Marathon and Relay runners rock out to Johnny’s rock-a-billy tunes while they follow a scenic, net-downhill, gently rolling course around Lake Natoma to the finish in Folsom’s famous Historic District. The 5K runners zoom down and across the Rainbow Bridge to their own finish nearby. All who "cross that line” will be rewarded with finisher medallions, lots of refreshments, a Johnny Cash tribute band, and free beer at the Finish Line Festival! The FREE Kids 1K takes place in Historic Folsom near the "big kids" finish areas.

"This race also starts with a pretty decent downhill run. It drops about 200 feet in the first 2.5 miles."
