COURSE

The 50-mile course starts at the Cool Horse Staging Area and will follow the American River Trail, WS Trail, and the Pioneer Express Trail to Folsom, Ca. The race will end on the American River Bike Path directly behind the Lake Natoma Inn. The course will stay on the trails 95% of the time and only join the bike path when necessary.

The MAPMYRUN map is never final. We will try and keep it as accurate as possible but changes can occur during marking. Always be aware of the markings.

Printable and downloadable maps will be available on the MapMyRun Elemental Running page. We suggest you add the MapMyRun application to your smart phone, print a map, or add the .gpx file to your Garmin.
