The Stampede 5k Race and 2 Mile Fun Walk strives to create an exciting, family friendly event during the homestretch of the Colorado State Fair. The Stampede is open to all and offers an exciting morning full of exercise and festivities.
Participants can get their cardio in during the morning race and walk, and then relax in the Runners' Village at the Finish Line, enjoying goat yoga, beer, a water slide, massages, refreshments from Natural Grocers, and of course, mini donuts.
The Race course starts at the State Fairgrounds and moves through the historic surrounding Pueblo neighborhood. Walkers will enjoy the ease of traveling the perimeter of the grounds in the 2-mile walking course. Restrooms are available at the start/end of the race and a water station is available about half-way through the race. The entire event will take place on paved roads/sidewalks. Strollers are welcome for the Fun Walk. Pets are unfortunately prohibited from participation in the Stampede.
All participants will be greeted at the finish line by a Runners' Village with music by Rev .89, Budweiser beer, Studio Share Goat Yoga, Natural grocers refreshments, massages by the Intellitec College of Massage students, a slip-n-slide, and more! The Runners' Village will be open for Stampede participants' enjoyment from 9:00am - 12pm.
*Only individuals who have a race bib or a gate admission pass will be allowed into the Stampede and Runners Village areas. For those wishing to cheer on their friends in the Stampede: additional gate admission may be purchased on location at the Beulah Avenue Gate for a discounted price.*
