The gO! Running Group is a Roseville based recreational running group that aims to provide group running opportunities for runners of all abilities. Although our focus is primarily on 5K to marathons, we have members who have completed triathlons (including Ironman events) and ultras. We train on both roads and trails. We currently meet three times per week - Sunday mornings and Tuesday/Thursday evenings.

Helpful For State Park and Trail Users

            Last month a few of us ran on the Pioneer Express trail gaining access at the Sterling Point Horse Assembly. The horse assembly is on private property and maintained by the homeowner's association. We met the woman who unlocked the gate at 8:00 AM. She informed us of a useful app for reporting problems or concerns on the trail. The app works with gps so as you report the problem be it graffiti, loose dogs or a downed tree it shows the location to the appropriate agency.  Consider adding the free app 
ParkWatch Report to your phone. You can find it where you usually shop for apps.

            Also helpful is the webpage for 
Mother Lode Trails. On it you can search the calendar to find events happening within the state park. This site also has the link to Parkwatch.

Holiday Wear Encouraged

Saturday, December 5, 2015

Join us Sunday 12/13 for the annual Fleet Feet Free Holiday Classic 5K and Kid's 3/4 mile in Sacramento. Race starts at 9am, so we will meet to carpool at 7:30am at  the Park 'N Ride between Sunsplash and In N Out on Taylor Rd.  The race is FREE but they ask that you bring an unwrapped toy to donate to the Salvation Army. There is no timing or "results" so the gO! Group usually takes the opportuity to run together. Don't forget to wear your gO! shirts with a dose of  holiday spirit!

gO! Invasion?
Guest blog by Bryan

When there hasn’t been a good invasion in a while, people (Race Directors) get complacent.  They forget the fear that the image of a marauding horde of gO! runners historically struck in their hearts.  It is time to resurrect this dreaded scourge of the local racing scene and plan a good old-fashioned gO! Invasion or two.  One of our Benevolent Leaders (that would be Anne) has mentioned this recently, and some worthy candidates have emerged:

Coloma River Run (5k, 10k, 10 mile distances).  Cronan Ranch area on Hwy 49.  Saturday, May 16th.  This looks to be a great trail run on a nice, challenging course that you may not have had the opportunity to run before.  A great value with a special gO! discount code (see our Facebook page for the code) and a nice price ($35 plus signup fee).  Reliable sources have told us about free BBQ, raffles for wine, swag and medals!  And nobody needs to remind you that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund is a great cause.  Signups are currently open.


Beat the Blerch (10k, half marathon, full marathon)
Sacramento (think Raley Field).  Saturday, November 14th.  This is a road course that we suspect will
include some familiar territory, but apparently won’t exactly be a typical run!  Think cupcakes, folks in “Blerch” costumes chasing you and we’ve heard rumors of comfortable seating at some aid stations.  Not sure about price, but likely in line with a higher-end run of the same distance.  Some of the proceeds go to charity, although we’re not familiar with specifics since the race was just announced.  While new toSacramento, the inaugural event in Washington last year received very good press.  Based on this press and ‘buzz’, the event is expected to sell out very quickly (perhaps in minutes).  Signups open Friday, April 17th, 9:00 AM.
