Stow Lake Stampede
5K and Kid's Mile


Join us in the third annual running of the Stow Lake Stampede 5K and Kid's Mile!  The 5K is part of the Pacific Association-USA Track & Field (PA USAT&F) Road Short Course Grand Prix Series*.  It is held in the beauty of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on a flat and fast 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. 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 receive 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-transferable.  

Strollers MUST start at the back and be careful not to impede other participants.
