Why is the Scoop Scoot just $5?
Thanks to sponsors, the costs of the event (park permit, safety cones, bathrooms, police officers, insurance, ice cream, DJ, beer, etc) are covered. The $5 covers the registration site fees and insures you’re committed. Additional donations are encouraged and will go directly to the nonprofit of your choice. To encourage early registration, price will increase to $10 on Monday, July 10th.
What is included with registration?
Each participant will receive their chosen scoop of Vic’s ice cream in a commemorative plastic cup. Participants will also receive a bib similar to running events. For those 21 and older, there will be a courtesy beer garden at the finish.
How do I purchase a Mikuni Scoop Scoot commemorative shirt?
The Mikuni commemorative shirt is available for $25, 100% donated to the four nonprofits, and can be purchased during the registration process. There is a limited quantity (300 available), don’t wait to purchase! Shirt proceeds will be donated to the four nonprofits. Shirts can be picked up during either of the bib pick up times (see below). They are not available at Mikuni locations for purchase or pick up.
Is this a race?
The Scoop Scoot is more “family friendly community event” than a race. If you and your friends decide to race against each other, please be aware there are participants of all ages and speeds on the course that may impede your speed. Safety first, then fun!
Who has to register?
Each person that would like a scoop of ice cream at Vic’s MUST register. This is the only way to secure your bib which will be your ticket to a scoop of ice cream.
How many scoops of ice cream are available?
Ice cream capacity is limited to 1,000 scoops. You can still join the fun and make a donation after we reach ice cream capacity, you just won’t be able to enjoy a scoop of delicious Vic’s Ice Cream.
When does online registration close?
Online registration will close Wednesday, July 19th at Midnight. After online registration closes, you can download and complete the registration form and bring to bib pick up on Thursday or the event on Friday.
Can I register after online registration closes?
Yes, you can download and complete the registration form and bring to bib pick up on Thursday or the event on Friday. Once ice cream spots have reached capacity, you can still join the fun, enjoy the beer garden, and make a donation, you just won’t be able to enjoy a scoop of delicious Vic’s Ice Cream.
What if I registered but can’t make the event?
Please email Zack@DonutDash.org as soon as possible so that your scoop of ice cream is available to someone else. Your donation will still be given to the non-profit of your choice on your behalf.
Preparing for the event
Where can I pick up my bib (and shirt, if purchased)?
There are 2 options to pick up your bib:
- Thursday, July 20th at Fleet Feet Sacramento (2311 J St. Sacramento) from 10 AM – 7 PM.
- Friday, July 21st at the Start/Finish area in William Land Park starting at 5 PM.
All participants are encouraged to pick up on Thursday at Fleet Feet to avoid the last minute rush. Nothing is required to pick up for yourself and immediate family members.
Can I pick up the bib of a friend?
You are able to pick up the bib for friends and extended family members ONLY IF you have a copy of the registration confirmation email. For immediate family members, this is not required. To save a few trees, you can show their email confirmation on your phone. If you have lost your confirmation email, you can log in to your RaceRoster account and download a copy. Unfortunately requests to resend this info the week of the event can not be accommodated.
Can I bring a dog?
Yes, one dog per person is ok with a 6′ leash or less, please NO retractable leashes. Please consider the following before bringing your dog – Is your dog friendly with 150+ other dogs? Is your dog food aggressive? Is your dog comfortable in large crowds of 500+ people?
It is your responsibility to clean up after your dog along the course and in the park, obey all leash laws, have current shots, and is tagged/licensed since the event takes place in a city park and on city streets. If your dog is aggressive, barks at dogs/people, or creates a nuisance, you will be asked to remove the dog from the event.
Can I bring a stroller or wagon?
Yes! Since this is a family friendly event, stroller and wagons are ok. Please NO skateboards, hoverboards, bicycles, tricycles, roller skates, or scooters.

When I arrive at Vic’s Ice Cream, how do I receive my chosen scoop of ice cream?
Each participant will receive a numbered bib with a “tear off” on the bottom. Bib numbers are color coded to match 10′ X 15′ colored canopies at Vic’s Ice Cream. As you arrive at Vic’s, head toward the corresponding colored canopy (Vanilla = white canopy, Strawberry = red canopy, Chocolate = brown canopy), tear off the strip at the bottom of your bib and exchange it with a volunteer for your scoop of ice cream in a commemorative cup. No tear off = no scoop of ice cream! Don’t forget your bib and don’t lose the tear off prematurely.
Can I keep the commemorative cup that comes with the ice cream?
Yes, the cup is for you to keep. There will be 5 gallon buckets of water at Vic’s to rinse your cup before returning to the course. If you choose to discard your cup, there are no replacements.
