Christa 's thoughts:

This race was held in the world's smallest mountain range, the Sutter Buttes! These mountains are usually just the backdrop I see on my drives around town so I was excited to see them up close.

The evening before the race, I went to New Earth Market in Yuba City, CA to pick up my bib packet. The pickup table was crowded in a good way. There was a buzz of excitement that got me even more pumped about this event. The staff handing out the packets and shirts were enthusiastic and friendly. I was given a large, high quality reusable bag filled with my bib, shirt, and swag consisting of some gels, snacks, lotion samples, and coupons. I had never received a swag bag for a 5k so I was pleasantly surprised to get one!

On race day, I made the drive to Sutter, CA. The directions were very easy to follow and there was plenty of free street parking all around near the event.

The course for the 5k was obviously short. At the 1.5 mile turnaround point, there was a water station with 5 or 6 people cheering us on and a photographer. I was hoping to see more of the mountains but I should've known the 5k would be too short for that. It was still very beautiful with green rolling hills and the mountains in the distance. There was a very slight climb uphill for a short portion of the race. It barely felt like going uphill at all.

Overall, I really enjoyed this race! I think I'll be training for the half marathon next year so I can fully see the Sutter Buttes in all their glory!
