Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Course Information

Where can I find course maps?
View route maps, live video tours of the course, and more here.

Will there be road closures on race day?
There will be lane closures, and where the route crosses a road there will be temporary closures by course marshals to allow runners to safely cross. We thank Sage Creek residents for their support and cooperation. Wondering if your road is on the route? See 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. All registered 1 km race participants will receive a reusable swag bag, t-shirt, and finisher medal.

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

What type of running surfaces can I expect?
You can expect a combination of 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, and supported by Sage Creek Physiotherapy. Look for medical volunteers at the finish line and throughout the course.

Sponsors
Run Sage Creek is grateful for the amazing community support we have received from our wonderful sponsors. Look for them along the course and at the start/finish line.

Volunteering
If you would like to get involved in this first annual event we would love to have you volunteer with us! Please let us know what you're interested in helping with here.

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.

Race Information for All Distances

Race Distances
Run Sage Creek includes 1km, 3km, 5km, and 10km 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 on mom or dad from their stroller. Out of consideration for other participants, please start near the back of the start line to reduce traffic jams.

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

Is there a fee?
Yes, see registration rates here. 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. Any funds raised will go to the Parent Advisory Council of École Sage Creek School.

How was the event date chosen?
Run Sage Creek’s Race Committee members discussed several possible fall dates, knowing that many people are away during the summer. We chose to have a fall event once families have settled back into their back-to-school routines and the weather is milder to give the opportunity for more of our community and beyond to participate in our inaugural event.

Although we realize it falls on Thanksgiving weekend, October 7th was selected since it aligns closely with Terry Fox week at École Sage Creek School without competing with other events in and around Winnipeg. We have run/walk events available for everyone in the family and we hope you make Run Sage Creek part of your Thanksgiving celebrations.
