The ride has 75, 66, 42, 30 or 12 mile options with the 75 and 66 mile routes traveling from Folsom's Lake Natoma, around Lake Folsom and into the American River Canyon before winding through the Sierra Nevada foothills back to the start. The run circumnavigates Lake Natoma on sweet trail with eco-friendly (cupless) water stops every few miles. This is a great first (or fun) half marthon and is limited to 500 women, so sign up today. There is no registration or packet pickup on the day of the ride/run, so make arrangements for pickup on Saturday. (Note: This is not a duathlon. Choose to either ride or run).
