LET’S RUN THIS!
Due to the current and forecasted rains impacting our trails we have postponed the Tesoro Viejo Run and Bike events until May 13th.
Are you ready for the Central Valley’s newest SPRING Half Marathon events and our newly added bike events! Run or bike through picturesque trees and meadows on rolling groomed trails as you view beautiful vistas just minutes north of Fresno’s River Park Shopping Center at Highway 41 just past Avenue 14. The Tesoro Viejo Classic Half Marathon will take you away from busy city streets to tranquil paths through some of the most beautiful SPRING scenery which rivals any run or bike ride in the State. Run start time is 8am and bike start time is 11am. Run, Bike or Both!
This event supports the Tesoro Viejo Conservancy. The mission of the Tesoro Viejo Conservancy is to preserve land, protect wildlife, improve access to the San Joaquin River, and educate the public about the region’s natural resources.
Participants will run from the main community Hub at Tesoro Viejo around the circumference of the Valley’s newest community, over bridges, through tree lined lanes, to the kissing gate and around the lip of a majestic gulch which highlights the beautiful wetland preserves in spring. The course is mostly unpaved trails with rolling hills showcasing some of the most picturesque scenery around, just minutes from North Fresno! You’ll have views of not only of beautiful green pastures but of beautiful new homes located in the community. Our half marathon has some mild hills where the 10k is rolling hills. Our 5k is 90 percent on paved trails and stroller friendly.
