Are you an outdoor Enthusiast? The Coloma Valley has two fun runs this weekend May 14th and 15th for both the expert and the novice. The first run is for the experts and puts you on the water. Slab Creek, a class IV+ scheduled water release kayak run has the last of its three weekend scheduled releases for 2016 on Saturday and Sunday. Please visit colomashuttle.com for your shuttle needs.
The next fun run actually involves running and has something for both the novice and the expert. Coloma River Races and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) have teamed up to offer a challenging and unique trail race experience. Check out this hidden gem as you explore adventurous terrain and breathtaking views, all in Sacramento’s backyard.
Whether you’re looking to introduce your family to trail racing or an experienced trail runner seeking a challenge, this race offers distances for all levels of runners (and walkers). The Coloma River Run is a 5K, 10K and 10-mile race that starts in the Magnolia Ranch Trail Head parking lot across from Everhart Cellars/Hart 2 Hart Vineyards. All three races start at 8AM and head West for about a quarter of a mile. The 5K turns left and follows the Gerly Loop with glimpses of the South Fork before it wraps back around to the finish line. While the 10K and 10Mile races head up the connector trail after crossing two small creeks. After climbing the connector trail the race hits the down and up, both distances ascend the down and up trail with a 22% grade. These distances are mapped out on a beautiful but challenging course. After taking several trails with views of the river the runners wrap around Cronan Ranch and come back onto the connector trail to the finish line.
