This is a nice event with a half-mile Kid’s Fun Run and untimed Adult 5K. The location is very nice. It is in a large park that has lots of parking. The course is mostly dirt (some gravel). Some of it runs along a creek and some is beneath tree canopies. I signed my waiver and picked up my tee the day before. On the day of the race, I was given a wristband and sent to the start line. No bibs, bagels or bananas. But finishers do get a root beer float. I enjoyed this no-fuss run that is held for a good cause.

The day-before expo was well organized. There were enormous signs in the large hall that told you what the different stations were. There were also great discounts on merch from local retailers. There were also plenty signs reminding folks to set clocks ahead that night.
This race was a good one. The aid stations were plentiful and the spectators along the route were friendly and fun. I was surprised by all the dropped/lost clothing I jogged over and ran past. There were gigantic mile marker signs. Miles were also indicated in chalk on the ground. The scenery was nice. We ran through residential areas and along nut orchards.
The finish line festival was good. There were a lot of refreshments for finishers. As part of the entry, runners could enjoy both wine and beer tasting. There was food for sale and entertainment for children. Finish line photos were printed and posted for runners to take, free of charge.

This race had Athena and Clydesdale divisions for runners over a certain weight.

I recommend this race to others.

The race was good. I paid extra for a bus ticket from the packet pickup to the start line…worth it. The packet pickup was smooth, but different than most. Instead of giving my name to the bib-hand-outer, I looked up my own name on a list and recited my bib number to someone who handed me my bib. Then I walked to a table to choose a shirt from stacks sorted by gender and size. I wasn’t offered safety pins; I searched for them and choose a few from a box near the end of the table. Talk about DIY. The early morning bus ride was smooth. About 4 or 5 local school district buses caravanned to the start area. It was cold there. The 5K start was a little ways from the drop off. We ran past the Folsom State Prison property, with its coiled razor barbed wire-topped fencing. That was cool and creepy at the same time. The finish area was good. There were a few vendors, including a chiropractor giving free body scans and therapists giving free massages. The post-race snacks were good and I took advantage of the foam roller area. There was a padded area with a bunch of foam rollers you could use and a professional you gave tips if you wanted them. All at no charge. The live band at the finish was great! They call themselves Cash Prophets. The return bus ride was fine, too. Buses left the finish area one at a time every so often. You had to search for the return buses, though. They were tucked around a corner from the festivities. I’m glad I participated.

The weather was nice, sunny and slightly breezy. The runners were of all ages and abilities. We crossed the start line when one of the race officials, without a microphone, said “Go”. The course was flat and easy to follow. Post-race snacks were good: fruit, water and energy bars. There was no awards ceremony. Instead, runners went to the awards table and found out where they placed. If you won, they handed you a trophy.

This was my first half marathon and my dozenth race event. The not-free shuttle from local BART stations failed; the buses did not arrive and commuters had to find another way to the start line. For the thousands of runners, there seemed to be enough port-a-potties. The sweats check was unmonitored. We left our labeled bags on the HS gym floor near whichever sign indicated our race distance & bib number. I’d read and heard that I should beware of an incline in the beginning of the race. I found it manageable. The aid stations were good: water, electrolyte drink, energy chews, toilets and medical tents. I appreciated the spectators and “road staff” who cheered for us runners. It really is encouraging. It rained for the entire race (I was in Wave 4, the last). The weather was especially bad running along the Berkeley Marina. The marina is a selling point of the race; but, I was unable to enjoy it because of this year’s weather. The announcer was great! He was so positive and motivating. The finish line festival had some vendors with samples and some food for sale. There was free non-alcoholic beer (“recovery drink”, they offered us). Heat sheets and bananas were everywhere. The medal is plain; but the BHM logo is cool. It looks like both a letter “B” and the number “13”.

This one is time number two for me. The short-sleeved tech tee has a great design…much better than last year. There were give-aways and prizes galore. Our bib numbers were entered into a multi-prize raffle that took place before we arrived. So, you went to the prize table at some point during the morning to see if you were a winner. The organizers bought too much food this year. Bagels & cream cheese, donuts, apple slices, cookie snack bags and bottled water were plentiful. In fact, the announcer asked that folks leave with a bag or bagels or box of donuts. The top three winners in each category won, along with medals, an entry to the Elk Grove Turkey Trot. How nice! (I came in 4th…bummer). Many of the runners know each other and the announcer seemed to know most of the winners. I was impressed when he said to us before the race that he had walked the course that morning to see how the rain had affected the course. He warned us of some potential trouble spots. This is an okay race that is a stone’s throw from home. I’ll likely enter again.

This was the 6th annual event by this heart failure awareness organization. However, it was its first time in Sacramento. Land Park is a popular venue for Sacramento races. Bib and shirt pickup were smooth. There was a free bike valet area. The course was flat; one loop for the 5K and two loops for the 10K. Dogs and strollers were allowed. My GPS watch registered 3.01 miles, a bit short of 5K. There may have been 10 vendor booths, including a radio station and a “waffle truck” with food items for sale. There were water bottles handed out with the swag bags and finisher medals. This simple event is family-run and it’s worthy cause drew me to register. To me, it felt more like a morning training run than a timed event. And that is just fine.

This was my first time in the 10K distance. I did the 5K in ’13 and ’14. Prior day packet pickup was easy. There is a free parking section and, for 3 bucks, you can park about a mile closer to the start. The weather was perfect, sunny with a slight breeze. The start was not recorded by the timing chip on our bibs, just the finish. The race master gave good instructions about trail markings and splits for the 5K, 10K, half and 30K. We all followed a bicyclist to the first fork. About a quarter mile after the start, we came to a crawl as runners walked across the first foot bridge. The hills are steep with uneven footing and you have to dodge horse poop in some areas. There was water and fresh watermelon at the aid station. The start/finish area had three tents: Fleet Feet Sports, Altra Shoes and a post-race leg massage area. The race fees benefit local high school cross country programs. There was music, energy, finisher’s medals for the three longest races and lots of good post-race food, including tacos and ice cream!

The Expo area was in a nice and big grassy area. There were plenty of portable toilets. This race is a Wiz event; but, the route is often used for runs put on by other organizers. The route began with an incline that you descended just before crossing the finish. The best part about the race is the participants’ 70’s-themed outfits. Some runners really went all out!

The races began and ended at a baseball stadium, which made for good parking, good viewing and good sporting vibes. There was plenty room for all the hubbub surrounding this event. Because there were 4 distances in this event, the prior-day packet pick up was very busy. And if you picked up your packet on race day, you handed over 5 bucks. There was lotsa merch for sale and the Blerch creator was signing autographs. Refreshments included bananas, potato chips, Nutella sandwiches, Clif Bars and white cake with green icing.

The Clarksburg Country Run is a local favorite. This year was the 50th anniversary and the organizers had some extra goodies for entrants. Paul Reese organized the first event half a century ago and so they gifted two of the books he wrote about running across the US when he was in his 70’s. In addition, the 5K runners got a finisher medal for the first time. Other than the much-needed rain, the event was great as usual.

This race benefits the Denver Children’s Museum, where the course starts and ends. The volunteers and race staff were especially nice. In addition to the 5K, there was a toddler trot and an infant crawl. The swag bag included Acli-Mate mountain sports drink; but, this Cali girl didn’t see it until after the race…tough finish. This was also my first exposure to a non-disposable timing chip. It goes and your shoe and you must return it to avoid a fine/additional charge. There were lots of vendors giving out good stuff (including toothbrushes and samples of Noosa yogurt…yum). The racers’ refreshments were good and the award ceremony was nice. One thing that I liked and had never seen was that, just before the race, the emcee solicited advice from the entrants, do’s and dont’s while on the course. Most of the advice came from kids who had come to run. The emcee even called some kids by name. The 1st and 3rd place finishers in the overall female category were mother and daughter, respectively. I got the sense that these folks were part of a tight running community. As a Californian on vacation, I was glad to have participated.

This is a must-do for Oakland Raiders fans. What a big deal! The race began and ended at the team’s stadium. The parking was ample, the paraphernalia was abundant and the energy was over the top. Some entrants were runners who weren’t fans and other entrants were fans who weren’t runners. But, everyone had a good time. The award ceremony was very nice. Winners got generous gift certificates to the Raider Image store and posed for pics with Raiders legends wearing huge Super Bowl Championship rings!

The Good: The frozen yogurt was a nice after-race treat. The hat and glasses in the swag bag was a nice change. The participant medal and first place prizes were nice.
The Bad: The course was boring and there were obstacles in the dirt portion. The misters were kept off due to California’s drought. They ran out of honey granola yogurt topping. The race began at 9:00, which is late for this Sacramento August weather. It was hot before we began. The MC/announcer could use some sensitivity training. While on the microphone, he made more than one derogatory comment about my Black Girls Run group. I won my division; but, I won’t participate again.

This was the first-ever Golden Arches Run in Sacramento. The proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities and Shriners Hospitals for Children. The 10K course was fine, just a few slight inclines/declines. I was glad to see three water stations along the route. They were called “Run Thru’s” and had the familiar structures and overhead signage like outside the restaurants. Each finisher got a miniature Happy Meal box with our finisher’s medal and other goodies inside. In addition to watermelon, Powerade and chocolate milk, there were cheeseburgers at the finish. That didn’t appeal to me at 9AM. There were many vendors and many people. Sacramento temps in August are usually warm and this day was no exception. We finished just in time before the mercury hit 80 degrees fahrenheit. I’d participate again.

This race production had a down-home, simple feel. But, it felt like the participants were running to qualify for a major race. It was that positive. The 5 mile course was pleasant. The race was production was laid back. We started a few minutes after 8:00 on the race coordinator’s “Go”. After the race, the award announcer gave the overall male winner’s age-group 1st place award to the 2nd place finisher. That was different. Refreshments were okay. The swag was great. A Pear Fair duffle rather than a tee. Nice! And the first place trophies were cool. Each had a pear on top.

This is a popular race on the Sac State University campus. There was a lot of fanfare with a local high school band playing before the race. There were lots of vendors, too. I was surprised to find that the post-race meal was hot dogs, tater tots and cake. I guess that was in the spirit of the Super Bowl. I think there was beer, too. The weather was cold and the start line was crowded. The snafu was that the course was inadvertently shortened to 2.9 miles. Oh brother! This race is sponsored by California Family Fitness.

The CCR is a popular race in the Sacramento Area. There are runners of all abilities and the production crew are true professionals. Parking can be a bit hectic. It is important to watch for potholes on the paved roads that surround the orchards. The scenery isn’t spectacular; but it is pleasant. Currently, this is my favorite event.

I live close to the event; but the winding 2-lane river road that leads to Clarksburg can get clogged. So, I was concerned about my arrival time. Parking feels limited because of CCR’s popularity. You may have a trek to the starting line. The pasta post-race meal is okay and the sweat check is great. November in Clarksburg makes for good running. The road race company and other event staff are helpful and professional.
