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-ing For Western States

At 5am Saturday morning Joe will become the first gO! member to attempt the Western States 100! We obviously wish him well and will be along the route to cheer him on! Some notes and projections on when/where you can see him:

  • Foresthill (mile 62)- This is by far the best place to see him out on the course. You can drive straight to the aid station without hiking or shuttling in. Joe's projected window of arrival is 4:45pm-6:00pm. 
  • No Hands Bridge (mile 96.8)- This might be a great place to help pick up Joe's spirits and give him one last gO! before the big finish. You should have plenty of time to drive back up the hill to see him finish. Joe's projected window of arrival is 1:00-4:00am (updates throughout day will narrow this window).
  • Finish Line at Placer High School (mile 100.2)- Nothing else to say. Hoping for 3:00-5:00am arrival.
  • Below is a list of the "crew" accessible aid stations along the way with times for arrival based on 20 hour, 22 hour, and 24 hour pace. Bold times are closer to Joe's expectations.
