We're giddy with excitement about some great changes to the 2014 American River 50!
The 2014 AR 50 will feature a NEW START IN FOLSOM at Brown's Ravine. We've heard your complaints and runners will be treated to more trail and dirt and less bike path! The course will run from Brown's Ravine to Folsom Point, along the Folsom Dam, across the Walker Bridge to the south side Lake Natoma before rejoining our existing course at the Nimbus Bluffs. And you can still experience a fast course. Crew and spectators will love the new course too, with less driving and easier access points. What will never change is the fun and festive atmosphere, first class hospitality and great swag (including our unique AR50 medallion and the one-of-a-kind Patagonia finishers jacket) that this event is known for.
Stay tuned to the AR50 website for more details about the updated course.

Welcome to the American River 50 Mile Endurance Run. American River has become the second largest 50 miler in the United States. The race attracts both veterans and novices alike. Whether you are attempting your first 50 miler, seeking a personal record and or dreaming of a qualifier for the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, this race is for you! Music, motivational quote signs, superb aid stations and encouraging volunteers will inspire you all the way to Auburn. At the finish line, you will be awarded your one of a kind finisher's jacket as you enjoy the post race festivities and barbeque at Joe's Café.
Thank you to our generous sponsors and heartfelt volunteers. Without their support, we could not stage these events.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
