The American River Parkway will be closed from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday between Campus Commons Golf Course and Sunrise Boulevard to accommodate a new race.

The inaugural American River Parkway Half Marathon is expected to attract up to 1,200 runners and 300 walkers, with the event beginning at William Pond Recreation Area in Carmichael.

Officials hope to raise $10,000 from the event, with the proceeds going to the American River Parkway Foundation, a nonprofit group that stewards the parkway.
