California International Marathon Road Closures

December 01, 2012 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Road Races

There is, apparently, some kind of road race thing going on this Sunday. (In this rain?! Even the ducks are staying indoors!)

Starting at 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning, there will be 16,000 self centered “athletes” clogging up the roads and interfering with your ability to drive your SUV to the doughnut shop.

Also, if one of your loved ones has the bad judgement to be out there, slogging their way to the Capitol in the rain, and you are planning to be out there to support them, you may need to plot a circuitous route to get your where you need to be. (But really, in this weather? Can’t you love them just as much while you are snuggled in your bed?)



Parkway Detour Update–Updated

March 05, 2012 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Parkway Updates

Last week, I wrote about some repairs of the parkway around the 3 mile mark. The work was supposed to have finished by now, but there have been delays.

The notice from the Sacramento County Regional Parks said:

Beginning Thursday, March 1, the American River Parkway Bike Tail will have a short detour near Mile 3 while work is being performed to repair damage (undermining) to the trail by beavers. The detour will take trail users off the paved tail for less than 100 feet and onto the adjacent unpaved maintenance road. The detour will be in effect until the repairs are completed.


Parkway Updates–Updated!

There are a couple of projects on the American and Sacramento River Parkway trails to keep an eye out for.

Just upstream from the I Street Bridge, where the Army Corps of Engineers had repaired a bit of erosion along the levee, contractors are scheduled to begin the installation some needed railing along the river side.

This should not result in a detour, but it will likely require one lane to be closed in this already congested, shoulderless stretch of trail.

In a few weeks, there should be a detour near Campus Commons Golf Course. From the Sacramento Regional Parks website: (more…)

Parkway Updates: Closures, Detours, Funding

July 11, 2011 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Parkway Updates

Something we all enjoy.

Like mushrooms after a summer rain, signs are popping up on the Parkway announcing upcoming closures and detours.

The first one is actually on the Sacramento River, just up-stream of Old Sacramento and the I Street Bridge.

There is a bit of erosion encroaching on the trail and an unguarded drop off along the river side. This is posted to be closed starting on July 13 and be re-opened on July 17th. We’ll try to keep you posted.

The detour for this part of the trail is (from Downtown) to head up I Street as though you are crossing the I Street Bridge and turning right down Jibboom Street. This will actually carry you up and over the work-site.
