COVID19 Considerations

Given COVID19, this year's race will look a little different. To promote social distancing and healthy habits we will have a 2-week window in which you can complete this year's Running with Sasquatch 5k. Starting 4/12/21 and extending through 4/23/21, time slots will be available to complete your 5k on the Ivy Academy Campus. A sign-up document will be sent on April 1st. You will select the time that best meets your needs to complete the 5k. Sasquatch will complete his race the week prior to April 12th, and his race time will be posted. Those who beat Sasquatch's time will earn an " I Whooped Sas" trucker hat. Time slots will be 4/12-4/23, weekdays from 4-6 pm, and 4/17 from 9 am-noon. You will simply sign up, run, record your time, and see if you have what it takes to " WHOOP SAS".

There will be Ivy Academy staff on the trail to help guide and supervise runners. Please be sure to bring your own water source.

Course Description

The "Running with Sasquatch" 5k will begin on the campus of Ivy Academy, at 8520 Dayton Pike, Soddy-Daisy, TN 37379

The 5k trail race is an out and back course along the North Chick Creek. The trail will be roughly 4-5ft wide and will accommodate two-way traffic. Expect possible creek crossings, standing water, fallen trees, and rugged terrain, with the turn around at "Pride Rock." We encourage you to bring your own water supply, especially if you are hiking/walking the 5k. Those who beat Sasquatch will receive an "I Whooped Sas'" trucker hat.
