The Davis Stampede is an annual running/walking tradition that is the unofficial kick-off to each year's running season The Davis Stampede offers a fun event for all ages, abilities, and interests. For the youngsters, there are 1/2 and 1/4 mile runs. It takes place rain or shine.
The Davis Stampede hosts approximately 3,300 runners and walkers each year plus an additional 1,500 specatators. All participants and spectators are invited to our sports expo, where our vendors offer food sampling, sports nutrition, apparel and other health-related products and samples.
The courses are quiet, peaceful and flat loop courses. Traveling through UC Davis' beautiful arboretum and campus, the courses offers views of Putah Creek, a variety of trees, bushes, and other greenery; flowers, agricultural fields, UC Davis' buildings and campus. The Half Marathon course includes portions that travel along scenic country roads.
