Event comments

The 5k includes an alternate route (if you choose) that goes along the bank of a Gold Rush era water ditch. This alternate route is rated 2C and is not suitable for either wheelchairs or strollers. The 10k route extends the 5k and ventures off through the town of Auburn. Both routes will provide walkers with views of what would have been the Auburn Dam. It was never finished and the white water part of the American River was restored.
