Sault International Festival of Races

The War Memorial Hospital Sault International Festival of Races

Join up to 500 runners as part of the 8th Annual Sault International Festival of Races (formerly Chamber Chase) on Saturday, September 23, 2017!  The Sault International Festival of Races provides runners with a unique opportunity to traverse the Sault Ste Marie International Bridge and run alongside the St. Marys River, all set against the backdrop of beautiful fall foliage and cool E.U.P. temperatures.  The Race concludes in downtown Sault Ste Marie, where the 15th annual Oktoberfest will commence at 11am.


Registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason. Sorry, no exceptions. Once we receive your entry, you will not receive a refund. If you cannot participate, you may not give or sell your number to anyone else. If you are registered for the half-marathon you can transfer to the Bridge Run without a refund of the difference. There is a $20.00 fee to transfer races.

Make Checks Payable to The Sault Events Inc. and mail to PO Box 1000, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783. Your cancelled check will act as your confirmation.

Yes, we are running the International Bridge; however, we are NOT entering Canada. Our route turns around prior to passing through Canada Customs. Because we are not entering Canada, you do NOT need to provide a passport or other travel documents to verify citizenship. Please note that no one is allowed on the Bridge without a runner's bib. U.S and Canadian Customs Officials will be on hand to ensure all participants follow the route and no one enters the race from the Canadian side of the bridge.
