Welcome to the site of the Susan B. Anthony Women’s 5k and Elizabeth Cady Stanton Kids ½ miler- the BEST little women’s race in California!
Sign Up Today!
Founded in 1976, the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) 5k offers something for both competitive and casual runners alike. Are looking for a fast and accurate 5k? We’ve got that. The course is USATF certified with long straight-aways which allow for fast times. Two past winners of the Susan B. have gone on to be Olympians while several others have been in the Olympic Trials. Awards for the top 2 or 3 in 5-year age divisions and the top 5 overall include items that you can actually use.
Are you looking for your first 5k or have the goal of just enjoying your experience? We’ve got that too! The race starts and finishes at Glen Hall Park adjacent to the American River and the course winds through the shaded, River Park neighborhood. The course will be marked with 1/2 mile markers so you can track your progress and there will be one aid station for your hydration needs.
All runners will appreciate a hassle free race day experience that comes with a race that, in the past several years, has had no more than around 600 runners. A smaller event means easy parking, the shortest porta-potty lines of any race in town, and plenty of post race goodies.
Finally, everyone will love the great goodie bag and cool blue tech shirt that you can run in for years to come. Runners will also appreciate the free parking and post race goodies.
In conjunction with the Women’s 5k, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Kids’ 1/2 Miler is one of the few free kids’ races in the area. Kids can run alone or be escorted by their parents and then enjoy a ribbon, a treat, and the jumpy house.
