A free 5-mile run along the American River is scheduled for Wednesday evening to mark National Running Day.
The event, part of a coast-to-coast celebration of running, is sponsored by the Sacramento Running Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging people to run.
The run, a 5-mile loop, begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Guy West Bridge and University Avenue in Sacramento. Runners of all abilities are invited to participate.
“We hope that runners, slow or fast, new or veteran, alone or with a group, will join us on the American River Parkway for this celebration,” said SRA Executive Director Ellen Moore in a press release.
The run is part of the organization’s “Come Run Series,” which offers a free fun run each month.
