The RRCA Championship Medals

The Buffalo Stampede 10 Mile Run – the race that kicked off Sacramento’s road race tradition! Celebrating 49 years in 2023, the Stampede also features a 4 mile run/walk. Both courses travel through Sacramento’s River Park neighborhood. The 10 mile course also includes the levees along the American River and the Guy West Bridge.

As the sister race to the Urban Cow Half Marathon, the Buffalo Stampede is the perfect training distance for that great event, and for your other fall half-marathons. So don’t miss out! It is one of the five events the Buffalo Chips Running Club sponsors each year, including the free Fourth of July Five Mile Run in River Park, Susan B. Anthony Women’s 5K, Jed Smith Ultra, and Willow Hill USATF Cross Country. It is also part of the Buzz Oats Run Sac Series.

As always, the Buffalo Stampede benefits youth running in Sacramento, including the Youth Chips. The Buffalo Chips Running Club is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing public participation in running and walking as a recreational and healthful exercise, and to providing opportunities for competition in the sport of running by organizing running related activities in the community.
