Gold Country 5k

COVID-19 Event Update

Due to the public health mandates relating to COVID-19, the Gold Country Half Marathon, originally scheduled for May 17, 2020, has been cancelled. Event organizers have planned an alternative Gold Country  5k presented by Marshall Medical on September 20th, 2020 in the El Dorado Hills Town Center; it will be a 5k ONLY event (no half marathon distance).

All current registrants in the 2020 Gold Country Run will be accommodated in the following ways:

  • All registrants in the half marathon distance will receive a full refund; you do not need to do anything, you will see a refund on the card that you used to register by May 22. Due to the refund, you will be removed from the event, so if you would like to run the newly scheduled 5k event on September 20, you will need to register separately for that event.
  • All registrants of the 2020 SRA Race Pass (regardless of if they registered for the Gold Country Run or not) will receive a refund for 2/3rds of their Race Pass due to the cancellations of both the SACTOWN Run and Gold Country Half. You do not need to do anything, you will see a refund on the card that you used to register by May 22. If you still want to run the newly scheduled 5k event on September 20, you will need to register separately for that event.
  • All registrants in the 5k distance will be automatically rolled over into the newly scheduled Gold Country Run 5k on September 20th.
  • If the newly scheduled event on September 20th is unable to be conducted as an in-person run, all registrants of that event will receive a full refund.

If you have any questions or concerns about your registration, you can email info@runsra.org(opens in new tab) with the subject: Gold Country Run — {your name}

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding in this very trying time for our community. It is our goal to be able to still facilitate a “tent-pole” community running event for the town of El Dorado Hills in 2020, and we look forward to having you all join us in September for that event and then again in 2021 when we bring back the half marathon distance.

Sincerely,
Gold Country Run and Sport
