One of the fastest and most scenic 5k courses you will ever run. Starting at East Lawn Memorial Park, our route traipses through the fabulous forties neighborhood on M Street before returning to the Park for one gorgeous, final-mile loop to the finish at the highest point in the city of Sacramento.
