About the Race

These trails are one of my favorite places to train on and visit. This race is run in the beautiful, awesome foothills of El Dorado Hills. This area has incredible oak trees, green grass and is loaded with single track trails paralleling Folsom Lake. The trails are fast to run on and have some technical sections too—lots of fun. Some shaded areas and lots of exposure as well.
