Jedediah Smith Marathon

50 miler – over wild trails outside Sacramento, California. Named in honor of mountain man Jedediah Smith who, in the Rocky Mountains, found a pass that was the key to the settlement of Oregon and California. Jed Smith wrote: “I wanted to be the first to view a country on which the eyes of a white man had never gazed and to follow the course of rivers that run through a new land.” You see some of that wild country during this run! (In his lifetime, Jed Smith traveled more extensively in unknown territory than any other mountain man.)
