The Sacramento Giant Race presented By Alaska Airlines is known to have some of the most unique on-course entertainment in the league! Not to mention, an epic finish on the hallowed ground that is Raley Field, home of the Rivercats. Get ready for the baseball season by running the 10K … MORE

    The course is a fairly flat course, which goes about halfway over the Tower Bridge (before making a U-turn), a short selection along the Sacramento River, and ends on the warning track of Raley Field.

    If you start near the back, beware of all the walkers.On other races I have run, the congestion clears up before mile 1, but I was not able to get free of the pack until about mile 2.5.

    The t-shirt and medal were pretty cool, and they provided lots of post-race snacks/

    Happy that I got to participate in the inaugural year of the addition of the Sacramento Giant Race to their 3 other races throughout the year. The Giant Race production team has this thing down and puts other race events to shame. Lots of parking, helpful staff, great energy amongst participants, and the coolest venue and race swag around. I don’t live in Sacramento so I came early and was easily able to pick up my race bib that morning. The organizers are extremely responsive and helpful via Facebook and email.
    My only minor complaints are that 1. they didn’t do any age group awards, that I knew of
    2. the photography company didn’t seem to catch photos of everyone, and they weren’t searchable by name or bib number, and
    3. the course got rather congested during one stretch of paved ramp pathway near the waterfront. I already provided feedback via their survey about it so hopefully that just gets rerouted next year. I was running the 10k at a pretty fast PR clip so I felt bad having to dodge people with strollers trying to enjoy walking the 5k. Still got that PR time though! I’ll be back next year.

    I’ve run all of the Giant races and so far this one is actually my favorite! This was the first year in Sacramento and they did a great job. The shirt and medal were super cute and the course was lovely. The only draw back for me was driving to Sacramento early for a race, other than that – great inaugural race!
