Come see the beauty of the Ruth McKenzie Table Mountain Preserve while running or walking this great 10k course. The entire course is on dirt trails. You will enjoy the scenery as much as the race. Each entrant will receive a commemorative Footloose in the Foothills shirt and after race snacks and refreshments. Awards for overall winner (male & female) and 10-year age group awards. Same day registration will be accepted (additional $5) and gates open at 7:30am. Event shirts only guaranteed to those who register prior to April 17th.
The Ruth McKenzie Table Mountain Preserve (2960 acres) is located between Friant and Prather, on the north side of Auberry Road. The main gate is 3.3 miles uphill from the intersection of Auberry Road and Millerton Road.
From Fresno, take Freeway 41 north. Exit at Friant Road and turn right at the bottom of the off-ramp. Take Friant Road to the town of Friant. You will see Friant Dam ahead of you. Follow Friant Road uphill, past the dam. At this point, Friant Road bends to the right and changes its name to Millerton Road. Stay on Millerton Road for 5 or 6 miles until you come to a stop sign at Auberry Road.
At Auberry Road you will see a gas station on your left. Using the gas station as your benchmark, note your mileage and turn left. Go slightly over 3 miles on Auberry Road. You will see some table mountain formations ahead. When you reach the 3 mile mark, slow down and turn left onto the preserve property.
The entrance to the preserve is on the left, where you will see a large corral and a gate. Drive in at the gate and park in the parking area.
