This is the "Fastest 5K in the West"... perhaps in the nation, even the world! It is also beginning runner and walker friendly. It starts on the Folsom Crossing (aka Johnny Cash) Bridge and stays on well-paved roads, crosses the famous Rainbow Bridge, and finishes in Folsom's eclectic Historic District. Participants receive the same amenities as the Half Marathon and Relay runners, including a Johnny-themed technical fabric t-shirt and unique finisher's medallion.
