Fair Oaks Sun Run

May 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

A Sacramento Area Tradition for 40 Years!

5 Mile Chicken Run & 2 Mile Rooster Ramble

The Fair Oaks Sun Run has been an annual tradition in Fair Oaks, California for 40 years and – believe it or not – it hasn’t gotten one bit easier! Regarded as one of the most beautiful yet challenging courses around, it never fails to attract both the avid runner and those who are out to have a great time at a great event.

Don’t Be A Chicken!

Choose either the 5 Mile Chicken Run or the 2 Mile Rooster Ramble non-competitive Run/Walk. Both events start at Village Park in Old Fair Oaks. The 5-Miler winds through the beautiful Old Fair Oaks residential neighborhood with a keyhole loop to Sailor Bar. The course is equal parts paved road and dirt trail and features the infamous four hills: Grand Daddy Hill, Hernia Hill, The Beast and Last Gasp. The Rooster Ramble event stays on the paved roads through Old Fair Oaks.

Chicken Chase Kids’ Fun Runs

Not to be forgotten, we also host the best kids’ fun runs (1/4 Mile and 1/2 Mile) in the Greater Sacramento area for children 12 and under. The famous, oversized Fair Oaks Chicken will once again lead the kids’ races and attempt to keep alive his undefeated streak. Kids’ race registrations include a t-shirt, finisher medal, sticker, free photo downloads, and a root beer float!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of volunteering at the Kaiser Permanente Women's Fitness Festival in Sacramento. It’s always great to be around inspiring women and girls! I've always found it important both as a race director and a race participant to volunteer at other races every now and again to keep a broad perspective. It provides valuable insight and fresh ideas, and deepens my appreciation for the people who volunteer at our races. Thank you to @fleetfeetsac for having me. 

If you are looking to volunteer in the near future, we are seeking volunteers for the Folsom Firecracker (Monday, July 4th) race for both packet pick up (held at @ Fleet Feet Folsom on 7/3) and on race day; as well as for our Saturday, July 9th evening race, the Davis Moonlight Run. 

Besides giving back to the local running community, we offer a complimentary entry to a future ACoP event if you would like one. If you volunteer for packet pick up or event day registration, you can use your free entry for that same event. Those spots always fill up first, so be sure to sign up in advance!

For more information or to sign up to help, visit changeofpace.com - the volunteer sign up links are right on the home page.  I'm happy to answer any questions in comments or by DM!
