Grab Your Friends & Create a H.E.R.D.*

  • Moms in Motion Elk Grove showed up in force!

    Your HERD will be the funnest group in the race! But not just anyone can be in a HERD. Happy Enthusiastic Running Divas/Dudes means only your coolest friends and family members will make the cut to join yours.

    A HERD is five or more people – because, let’s face it, anything less than that is really just a couple of cows standing in a field! When you get at least five people to join your HERD everyone receives an invitation to our private packet pick up event on Thursday, September 28 sponsored by Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento, New Balance and Lagunitas. PLUS everyone’s bib is personalized with the name of your HERD, so choose your name wisely! HERDs of 20 or more are allowed to set up a tent in the team area to meet before and after your run on race day.

    It’s time to get started! Create your HERD today when you register. Send out your HERD name to the coolest people you know and start training now. Don’t wait for the fun to start on race day, plan some fun training runs (under a full moon, on Taco Tuesday, on some trails) and make it an experience everyone will remember.


      • Personalized bib with team name (5 or more)
      • Invitation to private packet pick up event sponsored by Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento, New Balance and Lagunitas (5 or more)
      • Space for a team tent to meet before and after your run on race day (20 or more)
