COVID-19 Event Cancelation

We regret to announce that the rescheduled Gold Country Run 5k for September 20th, 2020 is officially cancelled, and refunds will be provided to all event registrants.

The top priority of all of the community stakeholders of this event is the wellness of our community, and despite the best efforts of everyone involved, the event is unable to be conducted this fall due to a variety of conditions relating to the public health and safety of our community. We are proud to have worked closely with these stakeholders to make the decision that is best for our community.

It is with great disappointment that we are unable to provide the town of El Dorado Hills with a community running event in 2020.  We are, however, 100% committed to bringing the Gold Country Half Marathon and 5k back and better than ever in 2021.  Please mark your calendars for May 16th, 2021 for 4th edition of the Gold Country Half Marathon and 5k.

Note: refunds will be automatically processed for all event participants.  You do not need to do anything.  You should see the refund back on your card by mid-July.
