43rd Running of the Buffalo Stampede
Saturday, September 9, 2017
The Buffalo Stampede 10-Mile Run/Walk, the race that kicked off Sacramento’s road-racing tradition, turns 43 this year! We are celebrating with music, running-related raffle prizes, finisher awards, cash awards for the top finishers, and 5-year age group awards!
The scenic course is part of the Buzz Oates RunSac Race Series and offers a $200 bonus prize for breaking the course records. As the sister race to the Urban Cow Half Marathon, the Buffalo Stampede is the perfect training distance for this great event, and for your other fall half-marathons. So don’t miss out! It is one of the five events the Buffalo Chips Running Club sponsors each year, including the free Fourth of July Five Mile Run in River Park, Susan B. Anthony Women’s 5K, Jed Smith Ultra, and Willow Hill USATF Cross Country.
As always, the Buffalo Stampede benefits Rio Americano High School’s Track and Cross Country teams, Fit for Girls, and the Youth Chips. The Buffalo Chips Running Club is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing public participation in running and walking as a recreational and healthful exercise, and to providing opportunities for competition in the sport of running by organizing running related activities in the community.
