"sMiles 4 Sammy"

“Life is not about the length of time we live, it is about the way we live in the length of time we’re given.”



Run, jog, walk or stroll at the 3rd Annual sMiles 4 Sammy Family Fun Run & 5K on Saturday, May 31st!  Race proceeds will be divided between our sMiles 4 Families program which supports families of medically fragile children in our Central Texas community and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation’s future Williamson County All Ability Baseball Field!

This year’s 5K will be a chip timed race that starts and ends on the Vista Ridge High School campus.  Youngsters (or the young at heart) are invited to participate in the 1K Ranger Trek with the Ranger athletes following the 5K!  The Ranger Trek will take place on the Vista Ridge track. 

Come have some family fun and let’s make a difference in our community together! 

This race is held annually in memory of Samantha Scott.  She lived for 10 months with trisomy 18, a condition considered incompatible with life.  Sammy defied the odds every step of the way and taught everyone around her that each day is a gift and that you don’t have to be old or famous to make a difference.

  1. Hi, I was wondering when our times will be posted on the vista ridge 5k that was done May 31st 2014?
    Thanks in advance !

  2. Great job on the Race Saturday.

    Where can we find results for the 2014 5K from Saturday in Cedar Park?

    Thank you

  3. I won’t be able to make either of the packet pick up times..is it okay to get mine and my son’s the morning of?

    • Hi Amanda, yes, you may pick up your packets the morning of the race. We would recommend getting there about 7:30 to beat the rush. See you at the race!

  4. Hello! I was wondering if yall need an volunteers for your sMiles 4 Sammy 5k? If so, I would love to talk to you more about giving a helping hand :)

    • Hi Morgan! We are honored that you would like to give of your time to help us! We could use help on Saturday morning during the race. We could use additional people to help us cheer on the runners as they finish the race and cross over the finish line. If you were to arrive around 7:30 on Saturday, that would probably be good. My name is Jill, and I will be working at the registration table the morning of the race. If this interests you, you can find me, and I will get you pointed in the right direction.

    • Hi Cathy! Gates open at 7 a.m. on race day. The registration/packet pickup area tends to be rather crazy on race morning, so we encourage our in-town runners to pick up their packets during 1 of the scheduled packet pickups if at all possible! Of course, if you are unable to pick them up early, you can pick them up on race morning. See you soon!

    • Hi Rebecca! There is no age limit as running ability varies greatly for kiddos! If a 5K distance is too far for them to run, then feel free to sign them up for the 1K!

  5. Are strollers allowed for the 5K run? My husband and I will be running but would like to take our toddler with us…..?

  6. I am interested in running your race. I was wondering what the age limit is, and about how many people you expect to be participating in your June 1st race.

    • Hi Malorie! Thank you for your interest! We have no age limits! We have a 1K option for the young at heart who want to go a shorter distance, or the full 5K for those who want to walk, jog or run the longer distance. Last year we had 400 participants so we are hoping to build up a bit on that for this year. We hope you’ll join us!
