Runners, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are invited to run wild on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the 4th Annual Gold Rush Fun Run on the El Dorado Trail in beautiful El Dorado County. Area nonprofit INALLIANCE is once again hosting the event that sends participants on a tour through the Sierra Nevada Foothills in 10 mile, 10K, 5K and 1 mile races along what used to be the Michigan California Lumber Company railway corridor, but now boasts lush vegetation and scenic vistas.

Following the races, guests will enjoy a Finish Line Celebration featuring snacks, wine and hard cider sampling, music, raffle prizes, and awards ceremony. Races will be chip timed, and medals will be awarded to the best overall male and female finishers in each race, as well as by age divisions.

The Gold Rush Fun Run is the annual benefit for INALLIANCE, a nonprofit organization that supports the independence, health and safety of people with developmental disabilities through community programs. Proceeds from the 2012 event will go to direct services that prepare people with disabilities to live, work and thrive in their communities. Last year, over 300 participants competed in the event, raising nearly $8,000 for vital services. This year organizers hope to double that amount.

The Gold Rush Fun Run offers participants a unique opportunity to view the beautiful Gold Country area at its best. And unlike other fun runs, this event features fantastic raffle prizes including a trip to Lake Tahoe, wine packages and more. Registration is now open, and INALLIANCE is offering a discount on registration and free raffle tickets for everyone who signs up by August 17.
