Welcome

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 or seeking a personal best, this race is for you! We are excited to continue our partnership with the City of Folsom as our start line and hospitality host. The race also features a 25- mile event beginning at Beal’s Point and finishing in Auburn. Two epic races, one scenic area!

The Race

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 and classic AR50 medallion. After the finish, enjoy our post race festivities and food at Joe's Café AND our celebratory beer garden!

Great Support

Thank you to our generous sponsors and heartfelt volunteers. Without their support, we could not stage these events.


Enjoy the Journey,
