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.

The Sunday Sermon

Our minister did preach
To gO! runners galore,
"Let's run all night long,
Then stay up and run more!"

The gO! congregation
Did gather that night
For our Sunday service
And things seemed all right.

(Well Isaac had sinned,
And could not listen well.
His fate might be sealed
He should go to...bed)

But the preacher himself
could not live up to his word.
At the same day's races
He was not seen or heard.

Heather, Bryan and Gladys,
To name just a few,
Sucked it up to continue
For a run through the slough.

And Gary and Anne
Met at 8:00 for a run,
To shepherd the others
Who had missed last night's fun.

So follow your hearts
For workouts of this kind.
And make your decision
Using reasonable minds.

And heed this advice
When you hear Josh's song,
Or you might still be running
While he is long gone.

2nd Annual Midnight Halloween Run


What: Midnight Halloween Run With Jason Voorhees
When: Saturday Night (Oct. 30), Midnight
Where: Foresthill Divide Loop Trail
What: 11 mile trail run through the woods
Why: Because Jason can't catch a gO! runner (or can he?)

Details:

We will meet at 11pm at the park and ride between Sunsplash and In N Out on Taylor Blvd.. We will plan to depart by 11:15pm. It is a 20 minutes drive to the trail head. We will start our run when the clock strikes midnight, doing a counter-clockwise loop that ends back at the cars. Estimated time of completion is 2 hours 30 minutes. This is a tough single-track trail that has some serious hills and dirty conditions. With that said, ALL RUNNERS are welcome, regardless of pace, no one will be left alone in the woods with Jason! We will then proceed to the nearest Denny's for an after-run "Grand Slam." Please RSVP on the "Who's Racing Where" link to the right.


"You're hardcore option #1"- My uncles band is playing at the Boxing Donkey in old Roseville Saturday night. Several of us will meet up for a drink or two about 9pm and enjoy some pre-run music and dancing.


"You're Hardcore Option #2"- Join several gO! Runners as they go from the midnight run to the "Down and Dirty" Mud Run at Folsom Lake Saturday morning. See race details at http://www.downanddirtymudrun.com/


"You're Hardcore Option #3"- Join several insane gO! Runners as they go from the midnight run to the Four Bridges Half Marathon in Folsom. See details at http://www.fourbridgeshalf.org/


Whatever you choose, it should be one wild gO! Night, DON'T MISS OUT!!!!
