Fair Oaks Sun Run

May 7 @ 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.

May 7, 2023

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!
