Chip Timing
3K, 5K, and 10K routes are chip timed. What does that mean? You will receive a small, reusable timer with your race kit that we will ask for you to give back at the end of the race. There will be instructions included for how to attach it to your shoe. It’s important that you wear it as described so the timing mats can record your start and end times.

The 1K route is a fun run and is not chip timed.

Bag Check
If you need a safe place to stash a small backpack or bag with dry clothes you may do so at our bag check. We will mark your bag with a small tag to match your bib number. Keep your bib number on after your race because we’ll need it to match it to your bag! Run Sage Creek is not responsible for loss or damage, so please don’t include valuables in your checked bag.

Water Stations
There is one water station on the course ~2 km from the start, and one at the finish line. As 10K participants will run past the finish line as they do the second half of their course we ask that runners who have finished their distance access the water station from the recovery area and keep the course clear for those still running. Please bring a refillable water bottle to reduce waste at the finish line.

Toilets
There are bathrooms available inside the school and will be signed and marked. There are no on-course toilet facilities. 10K runners will pass the school at the halfway point of their race and should not cross the timing mat if they enter the school to use the bathroom before continuing on for the second half of the race.

Parking
Do you live in Sage Creek? Please leave your car at home and walk to the start line at École Sage Creek School to minimize traffic in the area. If you are driving in for the race, and you know someone in the neighbourhood, make arrangements to park in their driveway. Give yourself ample time to get to the starting line! Start times are 8:00 a.m. for 1K, and 8:30 a.m. for 3K, 5K, and 10K. If you are coming in for the 3K, 5K, or 10K please considering arriving in time to cheer on the 1K participants!

Bike racks are available at École Sage Creek School and at Ron Duhamel park. Please bring your lock. Helmets can be checked at bag check in the gym.

If you must drive, please obey all parking signs, be considerate of residents, and note the following:

  • Do not park on side streets on the race route (scroll down for route maps)
  • Do not park in school parking lots; they will be blocked off and used for the starting corral, sponsors access for loading/unloading, and volunteer parking.
  • Street parking is available along Sage Creek Boulevard, and Des Hivernants Boulevard (even though the race routes are here, runners will be on the sidewalk so parking is okay, but follow all posted parking signs).
  • Lot parking is available at the Qualico parking lot at 1 Dr David Friesen Drive.

All race finishers will receive a medal, with thanks to our medal sponsors!
