The Shamrock’n Half is the Official Race of Cancer Survivorship. Saturday promises to be a day of FUN! Run/Walk the 5K or 10K (and then enjoy watching the little ones chase a Leprechaun for the 1/2 mile Dash. Rock to the music on the course, finish on the field and … MORE

    In a nutshell, this has been one of my favorite venues since I started my running quest 4 years ago. This race begins at Raleys Field (AAA Giants Baseball Team, River Cats) and ends on the 3rd base side of the Field. This course is well marked and have plenty of voluteers to guide us. The long sleeve tech shirt was a plus, usually it’s been short sleeve. The Finishers medal is awesome….

    The event was fun and like a party from packet pick-up, pre-race, race and post -race. The route this year was different because of local flooding. It was fun and easy, however most of it was the same route I have ran for the Urban Cow. I’d like to do this race again and hope they are able to have the route go back to running around the capital.

    This race can have great weather one year and raining the next, but that doesn’t stop the fun with this race. I love the setting at the ballpark and racing through downtown Sacramento. As the race continues to run through the trails along the river the scenery is so pretty you hate for it to end but you race right to the finish line at home plate at the River Cats stadium. Fun Fun!

    This is my second year at running this course and this year they had to change it due to the flooding at Discovery Park. This course had a couple of tight turns (pinch points) overall it was awesome due to the loop and watching the Elites run past me, priceless!! Already looking forward to my third run in 2017

    Trying not to bias the review because I mentally gave up at mile 10. This race was very hyped as the biggest half marathon in Sacramento. I did like that it was at Raley Field to start, volunteers friendly, V-neck mesh tech shirts for women, nice medal and finish area with beer (very Irish).
