Sage Rat Run


Sage Rat Run –  May 20 – 21, 2017 

2017 Event Registration should be open sometime in December, if we can wake the Sage Rats out their hibernation. Sign up for our mailing list and we will let you know when we are open. We hope to have the biggest season yet with lots of great improvements, but really, how do you get better than Starbucks and Krispy Kreme at the finish.

We also have the largest Half Marathon finishing medal in Washington, the Northwest and even the USA. You can also earn the most finishing medals in one weekend with Sage Rat Run.

In 2016, we had over 1000 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.

Here is quick list of what was offered to entice our group of happy participants. More to come for 2017.



The biggest Half Marathon finishing medal in Washington State? The Northwest? The USA? A massive 6 inch Dinosaur themed Sage Rat medal for the 2017 Half Marathon and 12k. Is there a bigger Half Marathon finishing medal around? We have no one that has challenged us yet, so yes, it is a monster of a medal. Not only is it big, we are claiming that it is the coolest finishing medal with an dinosaur and a rat that you will receive in 2016. 

This was the 2016 Sage Rat Run Half Marathon & 12k

6″ Finishers Medal

What better combination than Aliens and Sage Rats!

 2016 Sage Rat Run Half Marathon and 12k Medal



2016 Medal Lineup


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 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: Earn 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- then run the Sage Rat River Run 5k ( if you are tough enough ) 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 food at the finish, snacks and all the support you need along the courses. We also never charge for our event photos.

We will have chip timing.


We have worked hard to raise money for groups that need it. So far, with your help, Sage Rat Run has donated over $20,000.00 to various charities and other causes.


You have will have a cool-looking, newly designed 2017 Tech Shirt for your event Women actually get a Tech shirt in ladies sizes and a nice color for women. For Men, the color will be tactical black and some other manly colors, as opposed to a girly color my wife would choose. We also will have youth sizes.


Sage Rat Run is fun. We support all runners and all walkers for any distance and at any pace. There are no cut-off times. 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, like a blueberry pancake. It also has 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. We have so many PR’s we had to get a PR Bell. Give it a ring.


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. Free Hugs.


For 2017, Sage Rat Run will be part of the new Washington Half Series, more info coming soon.
