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.

A cool opportunity and message from the director of next Saturday's brand new trail run, The Coloma River Run:

Hello Running Group Organizers,
In case you have not received an email from me yet, we will be holding a tune up tour of our beautiful 10 mile trail race tomorrow morning at 8 AM At Magnolia trailhead outside of Lotus.  For those who have signed up for our race this will be a great opportunity to see the course before anyone else and for those who have not yet signed up, a great introduction to the area.  The run will start at 8 AM at Magnolia.  Jeremy Meyers , an avid trail runner and organizing member of our run will be leading any interested runners on the course.  Please share this message with your fellow runners and let us know if you are interested so Jeremy knows how many people to expect. 
Getting to Magnolia trailhead is a bit of a drive from Sacramento , but the scenery is well worth the drive.  The trail is off of Highway 49 just a few miles west of Lotus Ca.  Because it is a trailhead, there is no exact address for Magnolia, but it is simple to find.  Venezio Winery is right across the street from the lot so it is easiest to look them up first, they are at 5821 California 49  Pilot Hill, CA 95664.  If you check the map of the winery you will see a large white parking lot just across the street.  That is the trailhead for our race.  (map is attached)
We hope you and some of your runners can make it tomorrow.  This area is a hidden gem along the California foothills and we cannot wait to see people out there enjoying it with us.  I would also advise to take your time getting up there.  There is road construction on North Shingle Springs road for the next few days and the detours take a little extra time. 
Happy Trails!
