About The Courses

View the race courses with satellite map - COMING SOON!

Enjoy safe and incredibly scenic routes utilizing the Roseville Bike trail system. Starting from Whole Foods Market, you breeze through the exquisite Fountains promenade on cobblestone lanes, and minutes later leave the city behind and immerse into a tranquil natural environment. You'll run on smooth, paved pedestrian trails, alongside creeks, through wetlands, greenbelts and city parks - a world apart from busy thoroughfares you tunnel under and skirt around on the exceptional City of Roseville bike trail network.

Walkers, strollers, and leased dogs are welcome! The 5k and 10k routes are out and back, while the 13.1-mile run contains two out&back arms at the far end of the route, before heading back to Whole Foods on the identical outbound route. Each route involves just a few minutes of street running outbound and homebound, with the rest of the journey on bike trail, 100% free from auto traffic. More details on the 5k, 10k, 13.1-mile and Kids Fun Run courses, including the location of well-stocked aid stations, will be provided when the routes are finalized.

The 9:30am Fun Run is open to kids 10&under and entry is FREE! Kids over 10 are encouraged to enter the 5k and will enjoy a discounted entry fee. Parents and older kids are welcome to accompany younger ones on their journey!.

Kids in particular suffer from insufficient activity and poor dietary habits that have become a serious public health problem. Running School, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cardiovascular fitness with nearly 5,000 children at local partner elementary schools.
