Folsom's Run with Nature, Saturday, May 14
New location and new courses for the 33rd annual event! The races take place in the Alder Creek Preserve in Folsom Ranch, providing a spectacular natural setting for the event. Course options include a youth half-mile fun trail run, 5K fitness trail walk, and 5K and 10K competitive trail runs. Each course consists entirely of unpaved dirt trails. Note that due to the rugged terrain, strollers are highly discouraged and dogs are not allowed due to the sensitive environment of the nature preserve. All registered participants receive a commemorative T-shirt and a custom-designed finisher's medal. Find more details and registration at www.FolsomRunWithNature.com.
