Join us for the second annual Stow Lake Stampede 5K and Kid's Mile! We are proud to announce it as part of the Pacific Association-USA Track & Field (PAUSATF) Road Grand Prix*, in the heart of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on a flat and fast course (formally the Zippy 5k course). The event is open to the entire running community and will include an elite field, prize money, age group prizes, giveaways, and more. The Kid's Mile is for children ages 12 and under. We are thrilled to donate a portion of the proceeds from the 5K Race and Kid's Mile to Girls on The Run, Bay Area. With the help of our generous sponsors and the tireless work of the Impala Racing Team, this will be a race to remember! Please visit our Facebook and Instagram event pages for updates. #stowlakestampede

The race is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities, rain or shine. All 5K participants will recieve a commemorative gift, however, PAUSATF membership is required for prize money payouts**. Be aware that headphone use during the race is not allowed for USATF athletes per competition rules.  Officials will disqualify any USATF athletes wearing headphones from prizes or Grand Prix scoring.  This rule does not apply to all other race participants but we do ask that everybody exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings if they choose to wear headphones during the race. Post-race festivities will also take place near the Conservatory of Flowers in Peacock Meadow, in Golden Gate Park***. 

All entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and non-tranferable.
