SACRAMENTO — The 34th Annual American River 50 Mile Endurance Run is at 6 a.m. tomorrow.

Beginning in Sacramento, this run is the most popular 50-miler in the United States and offers runners a chance to view picturesque scenery as they navigate the challenging American River Bike Trail and the Pioneer Express Trail all the way to Auburn, California.

The race begins at Guy West Bridge and finishes at the Auburn Overlook. Spectators are invited to cheer on the runners, who train for an average of six months prior to competing. Many runners use the AR 50 as a training run for the popular Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of this race, all participants’ spots are currently filled.
