Less than 100 days until the Shamrock’n races hit the streets of Sacramento on the weekend of March 14 and 15. In collaboration with Blue Diamond Almonds, the Triumph Cancer Foundation gears up to bring you a half marathon, 5k, 10k and the Leprechaun Dash in support of cancer survivors. Beat the exhaustion and come prepared by teaming up with one of the coaches at Fleet Feet ahead of time to get proper running and conditioning training with their 10-week program months before the race. With the purchase of a packet, you will have scheduled speed workouts, long runs on the weekends and they will keep you in full recovery mode by supplying nutrition and hydration samples during group training runs. Not only does this package grant you access to training, but on the day of the event at Sutter Health Park (400 Ballpark Dr.) it will include access to beer, food and a massage. The package price starts at $139, but don’t wait because after Jan. 3 the price will increase to $144. The sooner the purchase, the better the deal. For more information, visit Fleetfeet.com/sacramento. Registration for the race is sold separately and varies in price by race.
