The Buffalo Stampede starts and finishes at Rio Americano High School in Sacramento, California. This local tradition kicks off the start of fall’s racing season. The fast and certified course is part of the Buzz Oates Run Sac Race Series. It is one of the five events that the Buffalo Chips Running Club sponsors each year. Along with the Stampede, the morning’s festivities include the popular free kids run that is overseen by Rio Americano’s High School cross country team. There is a $200 bonus prize if you break the course record!
