Gold Rush 50K - May 9, 2015

Gold Rush 50K reduced their distance to 50K only this year from 100K. Their 100Ks have been brutal in the past two years with very less people finishing. Guess, that is why they decided to do 50Ks only. They had shuttles starting from Karen's bakery in Folsom to the start line which is more than an hour's drive. The race started 30 mins late and there was only one porta potty at the start line (weird). Thankfully, their aid stations were ok.
For the post-run party, they gave away coupon for free food at Fat Rabbit, Folsom who took forever to get the food to the runners. Took them to get Shavi's simple order of a burger almost 2 hours and it was not even worth the wait at all!
