About the race director

Diane Cressey Hanes 

In 2008, my passion for trail running and the lack of organized trail running in the Folsom/Sacramento area prompted me to start the Folsom Lake Trail Run Series. I wanted to put on some fun, short distance races to help expose more people to the trail running experience and to provide more trail running events in our area. Since that time, our trail running community has grown exponentially! It's really exciting!

From 2008 to 2016 I have organized 30 trail races. In December of 2008, I also founded the Folsom Trail Runners club that currently has more than 1500 members.

I started running at a very young age and have been a runner most of my life. I started trail running in 2007 and have run anything from 5ks to ultra distance trail events.
