Blood, Sweat & Beers

The trails are calling

Takes place July 18, 2021. Be ready.


Fleet Feet Sacramento has missed you and we are feeling adventurous. 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 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.
