Posted: 04/23/2015

Elk Grove, Calif. — Ready, set, GO to the Elk Grove’s health and fitness festival on Sunday, April 26 on Longleaf Drive located between Big Horn Boulevard and Laguna Springs Drive in Elk Grove.  The City of Elk Grove and Kaiser Permanente present GO Fest— kicking off “May is Bike Month” and promoting active, healthy living for all ages. 

 GO Fest kicks off at 9 a.m. with GO Run, a 3-mile fun run that includes 5 Thrive cross-training stations, followed at 11 a.m. by “GO Ride,” a 12-mile bike cruise.  The street fair experience continues until 3 p.m. with free extreme sports attractions including the region’s longest mobile zip line, family entertainment and vendors promoting programs, services, and products that encourage a healthy lifestyle.

 All that activity allows for a little cheating and food vendors and nearby restaurants like Leatherby’s and Five Guys Burgers provide a “cheat meal zone” for food that should be enjoyed in moderation.
