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,
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.
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 at5821 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
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
Meet at Coffee Republic to carpool (corner of Auburn-Folsom and Greenback) or inside Negro Bar State Recreation Area. There is a $10 park entrance fee so carpooling is recommended. It is also only a 1 mile walk/run from Coffee Republic if you wish to park there and warm up with a jog into the park.
We will gather at the Southwest end of the park in the large grass area. When entering the park, drive into the main parking lot and then continue down the road that exits the parking area at the right end of the lot. We will be where the road dead ends.
Race start will be approx. 8:30am.
Race will consist of 3 laps of a 2 mile course.We can also do a 2 or 4 mile race for those not ready for a 10K.
Aid stations at mile 2 and 4.
