Stampede Road Race
The Stampede Road Race will be Capped at 1950 Participants
Enter early to avoid disappointment! We are only accepting 900 entries for the Half Marathon, and 1050 in the 5km/10km.
The Stampede Road Race was thrilled to support numerous charities in 2013. The Stampede Road Race Society has donated over $45,000 to Calgary Charities since our inception in 2009 and we plan to continue to do so in the coming years.
The Stampede Road Race is proud to announce its partnership with Can Praxis. Can Praxis help veterans and their families through equine assisted learning. Horses along with team building and communications training are some of the tool used in helping soldiers and their families recover from the effects of war.
Each participant in the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon will receive a top-quality Mizuno Technical shirt, which has a retail value of $65. Men’s and Women’s sizing from Small to X-Large. Participants in the kid’s race will receive a cotton shirt as well.

Love this race! Will be back for my fifth time in 2015. YaaaaaHoooooo!!!!
One of my favourite races. Well organized and family friendly. They always have the best race shirts and nothing beats the pancake breakfast at the end!

I have been involved in this race one way or another every year since I started running. I ran the 10K in 2011 with a friend, volunteered as a "Ranch Hand" in 2012, ran the 10K in 2013 and am registered to run the Half Marathon this year in 2014!
The route is scenic and beautiful. The weather is always perfect for running in July in the mornings (before the afternoon thundershowers).
The organizers are runners and know what is important. I'm dying to get my hands on the sherif star finisher's medal. There are LOTS of medals for age group winners. The shirts are always soft, comfortable, flattering and attractive.
There is a pancake breakfast afterward but normally I can't eat any of it because I have Celiac Disease the options haven't been gluten-free. Last year I was able to try a spoonful of gluten-free Stoked Oats (yum!) but it wasn't enough to refuel. A banana would make my day.
This is one of my favourite races I do every year and I hope to see you there!
Love the atmosphere, the route, the volunteers! Very well organized. Looking forward to doing it again this year after missing out the last few years!
Everyone involved did a great job in this race - yes it was a little warmer than usual, but from the volunteers to the organizers, everything was top-notch. Maybe there was a little congestion when the 10k and the HM routes merged together, but it definitely wasn't as bad as the Calgary HM's merge back on May 27th (and unless you have completely separate courses, you're always going to have a little congestion).
I have a lot of friends who want a bolo medal like what was given out for Half, I will definitely be running this race in years to come!
10K Great race. Fantastic volunteers standing out there with positive comments to the runners on a hot day. Positive enthusiastic atmosphere. I am SO appreciative of organizers and volunteers who give up their time so the community can have a race like this - AND thanks to the residents of the area who accomodate the event and some even coming out to cheer us on.
Ran the 10k.
* Organization: easy to register, pickup packages, regular updates, and race-times posted immediately!
* Kids races #purejoy
* Technical shirt #greatfit #looksgood
* Weather #hotanddry
* No post-race bananas or other healthy options, just Cobbs bread and pancake breakfast #lowcarb
* Lack of signs posted ~6-7km mark I had to ask 3 volunteers "Which way do I go??" mid-race #annoying
* No staggered starts based on estimated finishing time. No pace bunnies.
* Km markings were out of synch for the 4 to 5km mark.
Great race. I have done it for three years and every year is better. I will certainly recommend it to many. Jeremy Deere knows how to organize this race well and many of his helpers are runners too---they get it.
I've run this race 3 times, the 5k once, and the 10k twice. Hopefully next year will be the half! The course is well marked with more water stations than I would expect for a 10k (4 I believe...). The course is varied so you certainly don't get bored: road, pathway, hills, narrow, wide, bridges, natural areas, beside a busy road, and a short section of grass. The shirts are great, there are a few goodies in the race package and I enjoy the breakfast afterwards. I agree that some fruit would be nice, but overall it's a great, well organized race. I enjoy the track finish!
Best shirt, best atmosphere, and the only way to celebrate Stampede. Well organised and a nice course with track finish. The 5k course is however 100 metres too long.
I did this race (10km) for the first time, on a friend's recomendation. It was a really fun experience, a small race feel with some big race amenities. The shirts were great, the route was scenic and challeging but not tough, the finish around the track was cool, but I was surprised not to see any fruit afterwards. The Stampede breakfast was different than most races and there were samples (including a healthy smoothie which was cool) but I think fruit like a banana and apple or orange is a no brainer. Lots of fun and I look forward to returning here again.
This was a great race. Well organized and fantastic people and course.
