Half Marathon Course

Half Marathon - Course Update (as of 3/11/16)

Thank you for your patience this week as we worked through our necessary course changes to the Blue Diamond Almonds Shamrock'n Half Marathon course. With flooding rivers and parks we had to come up with a new and awesome half marathon course. We did it! The new 13.1 mile course cruises around Sacramento and still includes the Tower Bridge crossing, on-course bands plus a pass through the Blue Diamond Alley Cheer Zone. Due to weather conditions, we will not have an on-field finish but promise we will welcome you to the finish in style and with excitement!
