Sacramento Running Association
When they're not busy overseeing the world-class competition of the California International Marathon, the organizers at the Sacramento Running Association schedule a full slate of races for runners of all stripes. Apart from their marathon (a Boston qualifier that takes place annually on the second Sunday after Thanksgiving), SRA organizers pit runners against courses of various lengths and terrains, attracting everyone from cross-country enthusiasts to novices exploring their first 5Ks.
Check out our breakdown of each race:
- Super Sunday Run: Football isn't the only thing happening on the first Sunday of February; during the signature 10K race, runners dash from the campus of Sacramento State University to the finish line at CSUS's Hornet Stadium. There's also a 5K race, a 1K run/walk, and a pee-wee 40-yard dash.
- Credit Union SACTown 10-mile run: The California State Capitol takes center stage during this vigorous springtime jaunt that begins and ends at the illustrious dome. The 10-mile run features a three-person relay, though individual runners can explore the solo 5K course.
- Gold Rush 50K: Runners test their endurance during this late-spring cross-country 50K that begins in Cronan Ranch Regional Park and follows the rugged, snaking miner's trails that cut across the Sierra foothills. The course promises "2,383 feet of elevation gain and 3,101 feet of descent," giving runners a challenge that's hard, but manageable as long as they prepare and ignore the miner's ghost promising a short cut.
