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.

gO! Mile - My Observations

OUTSTANDING EFFORT once again by the gO! Runners with several PRs and close to PR times. Optimistically I think we can still improve. Most people ran a little too fast on the first lap. Slowing the first lap by 5 seconds may allow the 2nd and 3rd laps to be about the same split with a cumulatively faster 3/4 mile time. This is reinforced by the fact that most people were able to run the last lap fater than their 3rd lap split.

Women's Triathlon Festival

One of my favorite races is coming this Saturday and Sunday at Rancho Seco Recreational Area. TBF Racing puts on this event every year. Saturday's races are women only.  It's a great way to get started in the exciting, super fun swim-bike-run sport called a Triathlon. For those who prefer not to swim, TBF also has an option to run-bike-run in an event they call a Duathlon. All explained on

Saturday's fun starts with the Supersprint at 7:30. Plan an hour to drive there and an hour to get set up and body marked (everyone will have their race number and age marked on their arms and legs with a Sharpie) . The longer race starts at 8:30 but I suggest arriving by 7:00 before the Supersprint starts. Directions on the website and below.

Sunday's event is another Super Sprint but for everyone.

Each athlete registered for the Women’s Triathlon Festival will receive a $42 value Skirt Sports Race Belt Skirt but sizes are not guaranteed. PLan to get to the  Packet Pick Up  at Fleet Feet Sports in Sacramento on Friday September 7th from 2 to 7 pm where special refreshments will be provided by Skirt Sports and Fleet Feet Sports. Packets may also be picked up race morning from 6 am to 8:30 am at the race site. 

From Sunrise Blvd and Highway 50, head south towards Jackson Highway on Sunrise Blvd.  Turn left on Jackson Highway and proceed ~4.5 miles to Dillard Road.  Turn right on Dillard Road.  Turn left on Clay Station Road.  Turn left on Highway 104.  Turn right into Rancho Seco Park. 

DO look through the TBF site. There's a lot of information there.
