Don't Miss  "Running of the Bullipedes"!
Wednesday evening, July 2 in Old Town Folsom
Never let it be said that the Sacramento Running Association folks (the CIM & LN4B team) are boring. We've added a new event: "The Running of the Bullipedes," a centipede-style one-mile run through Old Town Folsom for teams of seven people, to help kick off the Folsom Pro Rodeo weekend. The
members of each team must be connected, and we'd love to see the teams "bullishly" costumed. Save the date and watch for details coming soon!
