Welcome to Sage Rat Run


Please join us on Saturday, May 17, 2014, for 4 great fun runs;

a Half Marathon starting in Sunnyside, Washington,

a 12k starting in Grandview, a 5k starting in Prosser,

and a Kid’s Mile starting in Prosser.

The Half Marathon and 12k runs follow the

Lower Yakima Valley Pathway and travel through

Grandview and finish in Prosser, Washington.

The 5k run travels along the Yakima River and finishes in Prosser.

The Kid’s Mile travels up to and loops through a park and back.


On Sunday, May 18, 2014, we have 2 trail fun runs;

a 50k Ultra and a 15k starting and finishing at the Prosser Chamber of Commerce.


Those who sign up for the “Rat Deux”, a run on Saturday and Sunday, receive a special unique medal.






Sage Rat Run is designed to bring communities together

for a happy healthy fun run event.

Proceeds go to benefit the PMH Medical Center,

the Ronald McDonald House,

other charities and causes.



2013 Sage Rat Run

Guest Speaker

Tara Costa





Tara Costa of Season 7 of NBC’s hit series, “The Biggest Loser,” was motivating and encouraging runners at Sage Rat Run. Participants ran with Tara Costa during the 5k on Saturday

and the 15k on Sunday.


Tara Costa was at the start of the Half, the 12k,

the 5k and the Little Rat Run.

Tara Costa was on hand to cheer at the start and finish at all the Saturday runs and the Sunday runs.


The Sage Rat Run Half Marathon is 13.1 miles.

The Sage Rat Run 12k is 7.45 miles.

The Sage Rat River Run 5k is 3.1 miles.

The Sage Rat Little Rat Run is a One Miler for kids.

The Dirty Rat 50k Ultra Run is 31.068 miles.

The Dirty Rat 15k is 9.32 miles.

We use three different GPS units for accuracy.

These are fun runs, but we try to get the distance as exact as possible. The Saturday runs are mostly a flat course. The 15k and 50k are tough, a 1000 foot climb up Horse Heaven Hills.


Register for the “Rat Deux” which combines the

Saturday Half Marathon or 12k with the

Sunday 50k or 15k and receive a specialty “Rat Deux” medal.



2013 Sage Rat Run Rat Deux 4” Finishing Medal 



In exchange for your participation, we will attempt to

entertain you, provide you with your choice of

mens, ladies or youth sized Tech Shirt, and for those

who complete the 50k, Half Marathon, the 15k, the 12k, or the 5k,

a cool Finishing Medal and more.

That’s right, a Finishing Medal for all runs, including the 12k

and 5k. You deserve it. Bragging rights guaranteed.

Our Finishing Medals feature a different design every year.

The 2013 were custom, metal, large, unique and will incorporate the Mount Saint Helens Eruption (May 18, 1980).

2013 theme was Rats and Volcanos. We believe that our finishing medals are one of the best and most unique around.


Every participant has a free Bill’s Berry Farm Blueberry Donut

waiting for them at the finish line.


Among other Finish Line food,

Sage Rat Run has arranged for

Shy’s Pizza Connection in Prosser

to provide each runner with

a large slice of pizza at the finish line.

Additional pizza can be purchased for $1.00 per slice.


The 2013 entertainment was Retrospect.


The 2012 entertainment was Cale Moon.

Cale's songs are written from his heart. He hopes

that his songs will touch your heart and make you smile.
