• Special Event on April 29​

    Special Event: The SacFit Parkway Half Marathon will be occurring along the American River Parkway on Saturday April 29, 2017. The event starts and ends at the William B. Pond Recreation Area, with runners going upstream 6.5 miles to Sunrise Recreation Area and walkers going downstream 6.5 miles to the Guy West Bridge. 

    The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail will be closed from Sunrise Boulevard downstream to the Guy West Bridge from 6 a.m. to noon. There will be aid stations set up at approximately every one mile to provide support to the runners and walkers with food, fluids, and if needed, medical attention.

    SacFit has created a parking plan which minimizes the impacts to the community surrounding William B. Pond Recreation Area.  Additionally, the community will be receiving a detailed letter explaining the plan and the potential impacts on the day of the event from the event organizer.   

    Additional race details are available on the race website at www.parkwayhalf.com​​.
