This race is not for you if you do not like a challenge. The high heat and climbs of Northern California keeps the finishing rate of this race under 55% every year. Come test yourself. If you are not up for the full 50 miles, bring up to 5 friends and register for the relay. Relay teams can consist from 2 to 5 members. All team race against each other. From Cool to Folsom; this course follows the Nineteenth Century gold miners path along the North Fork of the American River.
This path was worn in by miners in search of a good sand bar for gold panning. Eventually their path would become known as the Pioneer Express Trail: the most express route from the gold fields along the American river to Folsom.
