We are sorry to announce that the 2021 Redding Marathon Events has been cancelled . Due to issues with obtaining the needed permits for the existing course and securing the needed medical personnel and insurance we had to make the tough decision.
As a totally volunteer based organization, SWEAT will continue to move forward with plans for 2022.
We all realize that runners are looking to get back into a training routine and experience the excitement of a starting gun and a finisher medal. Whether it be a small event or an international event, they all leave lasting memories.
The Redding Marathon Events wants to continue to leave you with great memories.
We wish you all a very wonderful holiday season and will miss you in January and please mark your calendars for January 16, 2022 .
Sincerely , The Redding Marathon Events Team.

The start line is at the famous Shasta Dam located north of Redding in the town of Shasta Lake City. You will run across the dam and descend down to the paved trail that parallels the Sacramento River. Stunning views await you as you will run the 1st 9.7 miles to the Keswick transistion ( leg 1-2 of the relay)
Miles 10 to 18 will take you into the town of Old Shasta and quickly onto a descending paved trail back to the River Trail. This section of the course was severely burned during the CARR fire of 2018. As the area rebounds, you will see green growth as the plants and trees reappear. While the climb into Old Shasta is steep you will find that you will make up time on the descent.
Here you will rejoin the Sacramento River Trail and run a route across the historic Diestlhorst Bridge
( leg 2-3 transition) running out and back on the north side of the river trail and finishing on the iconic glass Sundial Bridge!
The original course was utilized up through January 2018 but has one bridge completely gone making the river trail inaccessible at the original mile 15 which led to the Ribbon Bridge.
Our runners mean the world to us. Do you have questions? Send us a message!
