Sage Rat Run


Sage Rat Run –  May 16th and 17th, 2015 

2015 Event Registration is now open. We have set up a new registration system which will allow you, the runner, to save money by selecting an optional tech shirt and other items. We hope to have the biggest season yet with new surprises for you. Thanks for your patience and hope to have a great running season.

We also have the largest finishing medal in the Northwest. You can also earn the most finishing medals in one weekend with Sage Rat Run.

In 2014 we had over 900 participants, our largest event so far.  

Located in the wine country of Sunnyside, Grandview, Prosser, Washington. Sage Rat Run is designed to bring communities and people together for a happy, healthy, fun run event while raising money for charity and other causes.

For 2015, here is quick list of what we are offering to entice you to join us.



The biggest Half Marathon finishing medal in Washington State? The Northwest? A massive 6 inch Pirate themed Sage Rat medal for 2015. In 2013, Sage Rat Run had an impressive 5 inch Sage Rat Volcano Medal, due to the anniversary of Mount St Helens’ eruption. The Little Rock Marathon claims to have the largest “marathon” finishing medal in the country at around 8 inches and around a 4 inch medal for their Half Marathon. The 2014 Sage Rat Run Half Marathon / 12k Finishing Medal was a whopping 6 inch monster, almost 8 inches at the widest point! Caution: Do Not Wear This Medal Near Water. Is there a bigger Half Marathon finishing medal in Washington? In the Northwest? We think not. Not only will it be big, we are claiming that it will be the coolest finishing medal with a rat that you will receive in 2014. What about 2015, we are looking for the biggest medal in the northwest. If we are wrong about having the coolest, biggest, medal in the Northwest, please let us know so we can try harder, we want to be number one.

You can earn a total of four Finishing Medals (actually 5 medals, if you’re motivated) during our Sage Rat Run event. Here is how you can earn the most medals. Sign up for the Rat Deux – one run on Saturday and one run on Sunday. Earn your first medal by run/walking either the Half Marathon, 12k or the 5k on Saturday. Earn your second medal by running/walking, the Dirty Rat Trail Run – 10k, 15k or 25k on Sunday. Third medal: Get your Rat Deux medal after completing two runs in two days. Fourth medal: Sign up for our Sage Rat Virtual Run, an anywhere, anytime, any distance run. Fifth medal: Sign up for either the Half Marathon or 12k, as well as the 5k, then finish the Half or 12k run before the 5k start – then run the Sage Rat River Run 5k and get a finishing medal for that run as well. That would get you 5 different uniquely designed medals for one weekend. If you have not noticed we like medals, and yes, we have 5k and Little Rat medals.


At the finish line every participant is provided great music, real foods at the finish, snacks and all the support you need along the courses. We also never charge for our event photos.

We have chip timing for every event, even the Little Rat Run – a one mile kids run. 


We have worked hard to raise money for groups that need it. So far, with your help, Sage Rat Run has donated over $10,000.00 to various charities and other causes.


You have the option of purchasing a cool-looking, newly designed 2015 Tech Shirt for an additional $10.00. Women actually get a Tech shirt in ladies sizes and a nice color for women. For Men, the color will be tactical black, as opposed to a girly color my wife would choose. We also have youth sizes for the kids run.


Sage Rat Run is fun. We support all runners and all walkers for any distance and at any speed. We are looking for happy finishers at Sage Rat Run. Read our reviews. Are there more reasons to run the Sage Rat Run – of course – read on – but really – what more do you want? A flat course? The course is pretty flat with a few miles of gradual down hill slope to the finish. A lot of people PR at Sage Rat Run. Try our 12k. If you have never tried a 12k you are guaranteed a PR.


Besides Disneyland and Disney World, Sage Rat Run is the only location that you can have your picture taken with a large rodent. Dusty, our Sage Rat Mascot will be available for character greetings and photos.


The look on the faces of your friends and family when you show them the medals you earned and tell them the mileage you ran in one weekend.

Please join us in May for Sage Rat Run.
