Blood, Sweat & Beers

July 28, 2024

the trails are calling



It’s time to get back on the trails. Escape into a land of green valleys, (browner in the summer—it is the dry season) and windswept peaks. The Blood, Sweat and Beers Trail Run presented by Altra is nestled in the American River Canyon. The course has rocks, roots (to keep you on your toes or on your face), lot’s of dirt, hills, and wildlife. Both the Long Course (10.5 miles) and Short Course (5.9 miles) are a challenging mix of single track mountainous trail, a totally cool canal system, unimproved dirt roads with just a hint of paved roads to keep things interesting. What are you waiting for?  Accept the challenge and join us for the Blood, Sweat and Beers Trail run.

Discover the trail runner in you this spring, summer and fall. The Fleet Feet Sacramento Trail Series takes your running off-road with a three-part series of sell-out races that promise to deliver breath-taking wilderness locations within a 1-hour drive of Sacramento.

The series kicks off with The Dirty Secret Trail Run in May, followed by the Blood, Sweat and Beers Trail Run in July and wraps up with Granite Head Trails & Ales in October. Each of the three races in the series offers a Short Course and Long Course distance to choose from.

Participants who sign up for all 3 events in the series will receive a commemorative Trail Series beanie at the end of the series.
