The NorCal John Frank Memorial run is still scheduled for this Saturday, March 4th. However, due to excessive flooding on the Sacramento River Trail system, the race venue has been moved.
We will stage all races from the Shasta Dam Visitor Center parking lot, 16349 Shasta Dam Blvd, Shasta Lake, CA 96019
All race times will remain the same, as will packet pickup on Friday at Fleet Feet in Redding.
All courses will start and finish in parking lot and will run across Shasta Dam to Sacramento River Rail Trail if need be, mainly the 10M.
Looking forward to Saturday.
Bill Dodson sets NINE pending American Records at Riverbank One Day Classic 24-Hour Track Run
Riverbank High School Track, Riverbank, CA
February 25, 2017
Bill’s M80 American Records (pending)
Distances and times to be announced when official results are posted.
(Note: Bill achieved the 50 miles, 100 km and 24 hours pending records with 6 hours to spare. He holds the current ARs for 2 hours, 12 hours and 50km set at last year’s Riverbank Run. Also, the 15km, 10mi, 20km, 25km, 30km and 20mi have never been set by anyone over 80, so Jon Olsen (Race Director) and John Brooks (Race Timer) made special efforts to record his times at each. New ARs for these will depend on getting them ratified by USATF.)
As reported by Bill:
“At 9:03 am on Saturday I started running on the Riverbank HS track at a reasonably conservative pace. I progressed (regressed?) from running; to walking and running; then to walking only. In order to set my 24 hour record as high as I could, I kept on walking until 9:03 Sunday morning. During that last 6 hours I took my only breaks – 4 of about 10 minutes each, sleeping in a chair (when I was about to fall asleep walking).
The main aid station was run by the Riverbank Track Team. On my first stop I asked one of the girls to write ‘Bill D’ on my cup and save it for my next stops. Now that they knew my name, they became my own personal cheerleaders with enthusiastic cheering on every lap! That, along with having another record to pursue upon achieving each one, I was highly motivated to keep pushing my limits…
In order to get all of the AR’s, I needed to complete at least 255 laps. I don’t remember the exact numbers, but I completed about 307 laps for 122.8 km/78 miles. The previous 24 hour record was just under 102km.
I can’t adequately express appreciation from all of us runners for Jon Olsen, his Family, Riverbank High School and their Track Team, John Brooks, Fazio’s of Modesto, and all of the others who put in an incredible effort and took some high risks to make this a success. Also, I got so much support and ‘high fives’ from many other runners and their support teams – I appreciate all of them with warm memories from a cold night!”
The PAUSATF Foundation is pleased to present this year’s Elite Athlete Grant winners. Out of our strongest application pool yet, the following winners have been awarded $1000 or $500 grants to assist them in their path to the 2017 USATF Outdoor Nationals in Sacramento and beyond. Congratulations to all of these outstanding athletes!

Best of luck to all of you in your quest for London.
It took San Jose’s Antonio Arreola 39 years and 365 days to set the worlds record for the longest span between sub 3-hour Marathons – Dec. 05, 1976 to 04 Dec. 04, 2016 (CIM) – but unfortunately he only got to hold the record for 2 1/2 months as Britian’s Steve Smythe upped the span to 40 years 119 days on Feb. 19. The versatile Arreola, the 2016 PA Road GP Champ Short Series 50+ Champion, will be highly motivated to run sub 3:00 at the 2017 CIM which will also be the USATF Marathon Championship. The smart money is on him to do it.
