Upcoming Traditional Events:

Pi Day - March 14, 2022

Come celebrate the ratio between the circumference of a circle to its diameter--approximately 3.14 - on Pi Day! There will be a 5K (approx 3.14 miles) and a 10K (approx 3.14 x 2) routes available which are rated a 1A. This route was designed to take people into neighborhoods they'd never walked in before; they'll walk in the Little Pocket neighborhood and discover Belle Cooledge and Bahnfleth Parks as well as trying out Kobasic's Candies on Riverside Blvd. They'll walk by the Sacramento Executive Airport and the Sacramento Public Safety Center as well as the Belle Cooledge Library.
