A spectacular Fall morning greeting the runners of the 5th Annual Folsom Blues Breakout. A total of approximately 1,800 competed in the four events. Most of the entrants were from California, but out-of-state Johnny Cash fans came from AR, AZ, CO, MI, MO, NV, OR, TN, WA and Alberta, Canada! Although the course was revised to avoid the rock slide on the north shore of Lake Natoma, all went well. Thank you for your patience with this change.
Enjoy the slide show below compiled from many of the wonderful photos that were posted on the FBB Facebook page - lots of happy runners in spite of the change!
Event management sends a big "THANK YOU" to our sponsors, the hundreds of volunteers, and to our entrants for making this event possible. Proceeds from the Folsom Blues Breakout events help to fund youth fitness through both the free Kids 1K Breakaway and for maintenance and improvements of the Willow Hill Cross Country Course at Folsom High School.
Results are final! Kudos to the Half Marathon, Relay and 5K overall winners listed below the slide show. Age Division awards for the Half marathon and 5K and the 3-deep Relay Team Division awards will be mailed out. They should be in the hands (and on the belts - that's a hint) of the award winners in about a month, since they are custom made and coming directly from the awards company.
Be sure to visit our booth at the California International Marathon Expo on December 1st and 2nd at the Sacramento Convention Center, where you will be able to enter the 2018 FBB for the lowest rate of the year!
