COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Currently there are no public health restrictions in place, but if we learned anything from last year's Run Sage Creek, it's that things can change quickly. If anything changes we will communicate that as quickly and as clearly as possible.

Course Information

Is this event in-person, virtual, or both?
Our event this year will be in-person, but we will retain a virtual option for those who like the flexibility. More details soon!

Where can I find course maps?
View route maps here.

My child wants to run in the 1 km race but might not do it without me. Do I have to register too?
The 1 km Fun Run was designed with children in mind, including our smallest runners! There is no age minimum or maximum but the runner/walker must be registered to be accompanied by a caregiver. 

One parent or caregiver aged 12 or older may run with younger children without being registered for the 1 km Fun Run, but they will not receive the race kit. All unregistered parents and caregivers who accompany children on the course will be required to sign a course waiver at race kit pickup.

I want to run in the 3K or 5K and push my child in the stroller. Do I have to register the child?

One parent or caregiver may walk or run with children 5 or under without registering them provided that child remains in the stroller for the entire route, and the caregiver signs a waiver on their behalf at race kit pickup. Unregistered children who accompany a registered caregiver will not receive a race kit.

Will there be road closures on race day?
Lane closures yet, road closures no! Where the route crosses a road there will be temporary closures by course marshals to allow runners to safely cross but these are primarily at marked cross walks. We thank Sage Creek residents for their support and cooperation. Wondering if your road is on the route? See route maps here.

What type of running surfaces can I expect?
You can expect a combination of sidewalks, roadways, and limestone trails that wind their way through Sage Creek. Route maps are available here.

Medical Assistance
Medical assistance will be provided by qualified volunteers. Look for medical volunteers at the finish line and throughout the course.

Volunteering
If you would like to get involved in this event we would love to have you volunteer with us! Please visit our volunteer page for information, and watch for a call for volunteers.

Cheering and Support
Runners and walkers of all ages and ability levels love to be cheered along as they go! If you live on the race route please wave, smile, and cheer as the runners and walkers pass! If you are attending with a runner or walker, but aren't registered yourself, please do find a comfortable and safe location from which to cheer.

Prizes and Awards
Awards will be presented to top finishers in each category, more details coming soon.

Race Information for All Distances

Race Distances
Run Sage Creek includes 1km, 3km, and 5km races. View course maps here.

Do I have to run? Can I walk?
We encourage all ages and all levels of fitness and have distances to accommodate all activity levels. View course maps here.

Strollers
We encourage everyone in the family to participate, even if that means they’re cheering from their stroller. Out of consideration for other participants, please start near the back of the start line to reduce traffic jams. Children 5 and under who remain in the stroller for the entire route do not need to register separately from a running/walking parent or caregiver - but we will need that caregiver to sign a waiver on their behalf at race kit pickup.

Dogs
For the safety of all participants and your pets, dogs are not permitted on the course.

Is there a fee?
Yes, rates are on our registration page. Run Sage Creek is a walk/run in the Sage Creek Community with the goal to encourage and inspire everyone to get outside and be active. Funds raised will go to the Parent Advisory Council of École Sage Creek School
