Run Steep - Get Strong

The Fair Oaks Sun Run has been an annual tradition in Fair Oaks, California for over 35 years and - believe it or not - it hasn't gotten one bit easier!  Regarded as one of the most beautiful yet challenging courses around, it never fails to attract both the avid runner and those who are out to have a great time at a great event.

The 5-miler (aka The Chicken Run) winds through the beautiful Old Fair Oaks residential neighborhood with a keyhole loop to Sailor Bar. The course is half paved roads, half dirt trail and features the infamous four hills: Grand Daddy Hill, Hernia Hill, The Beast and Last Gasp. The 2-mile Rooster Ramble Run/Walk event stays on the paved roads through Old Fair Oaks.
