The 2016 Golden Arches Run is just around the corner and is your chance to Beat the Hamburglar! Yes, that’s right, the striped pint-sized burglar will the be runner to beat on this year’s course as athletes from all over the Sacramento Valley travel along the city streets of Sacramento and West Sacramento in an effort to reach the finish line before this gibberish-mumbling hamburger thief.
5K, 10K and Kids Run events await you at this event which benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northern California and Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Oh, and Ronald McDonald himself will be there for a second year to high-five entrants at the start and finish line.
Entry includes a race t-shirt, finisher medal, eligibility for age group awards and post-race food (includes smoothies, gogurts, apples and of course burgers). Join us at Riverwalk Park on Sunday, October 23rd. Register or read more here.
