We also offer a family friendly 2K (1.24 mile) fun run/walk division that is perfect for younger athletes, families, and pups. Starting and finishing at Davis’ Playfields Park, the Davis Stampede is a great way to kick off 2023 with a commitment to fitness. Courses are mostly flat and take runners and walkers through east and south Davis’s greenbelts and neighborhood streets. Race amenities include finisher’s medals, half marathon pace groups, t-shirts, a post-race expo, and course water stations stocked with water and electrolyte replacement along the course.

Safety pins will be available at registration. On race morning, please pin your race bib to the clothing on the FRONT of your body so that it is visible to timing officials, course monitors, and race photographers.
Overall awards will be presented to the top male, female and nonbinary finishers based on gun time. Age group awards will be determined by net time and will be awarded to the top three male, female, and nonbinary registrants per age group. Registrants may decline to state their gender and / or age, however, those entrants will not be eligible for age group or overall awards or results ranking in those categories.

Half Marathon course cut-off time is 3.5 hours or 11:30 a.m. Those on a pace to finish after this time will be offered a ride back to the finish line.
Minimum age to participate in the Half Marathon is 15. Consideration will be made on a case by case basis for youth 14 and under to participate in the Half Marathon who are sufficiently trained; must be accompanied by an adult. Send your request to email@example.com by February 13th.
Water/fluid stations will be located approximately every two miles and will offer water and electrolyte replacement. Please carry nutrition with you should it be a part of your training/racing regimen.
Wheelchair entrants may participate in all divisions. Racing wheelchairs should start at the front and coordinate with event official; pushed or casual wheelchair entrants should start toward the back. Adaptive Divisions in the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon. Please note: half marathon has approximately 1/4 mile on crushed gravel by Barovetto Park plus about 1 mile on trail (service road around Wildhorse Golf Course). 5K or 10K entrants wishing to push a stroller MUST start toward the back of the pack at the starting line, no exceptions. In the 2K, strollers, dogs, wagons (for children or dogs) and wheelchairs are permitted. Those with dogs or strollers should line up behind the runners who are participating without a dog/stroller. Dogs must be on a nonretractable leash, well behaved in crowds and around other dogs, and owners must clean up after their pet. It is not suggested that children under age 9 run unaccompanied in the 2K.
Because this even utilizes chip timing for all events, we remind participants that there is no need to crowd the start line when the race starts; your time does not start until you physically cross the mats at the starting line. All age group awards and results placements, except for the top overall finishers (i.e. first 3 per gender across the finish line), are determined by chip/net time.
If you are a sighted guide for a visually impaired participant, or a support runner/walker for an entrant in an adaptive category (Limb Deficiency, Duo Team, Intellectual Impairment, or Visually Impaired), please do not enter the adaptive division. Support Runners (including sighted guides) for entrants in the Visually Impaired, Limb Deficiency, Duo Team, or Intellectual Impairment divisions must be registered for the event either as a standard paid entrant or as a support runner. Entering as a support runner is is offered at no charge. To register for the support runner/walker category, select "Support Runner" choice at registration (end of list). Those registering as a support runner will receive a special support runner bib and will not be eligible for age group awards nor be ranked by age. A race t-shirt and medal are offered to support runners for $7 and $5, respectively. One may opt out of either or both items to make the entry free. (No support runner entry available for wheelchair entrants except for pushed wheelchairs). In the case that support runners wish to receive the full race experience (eligible for awards, ranked by age division, etc) in that case they should register for the distance they are going to run/walk (Half Marathon, 5K, etc) instead of as a Support Runner, but be sure to not enter an Adaptive Division. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions prior to registering.
- We suggest that support runners/walkers and guides wear high visibility clothing or a vest indicating that they are a guide or a support runner. However, it is not required.
- Please do not register as a Support Runner if you do not already have an athlete you are paired with. At this time we do not have a matching program, but will post if there are adaptive entrants seeking support runners.
- Please email us at email@example.com with any questions.
Entries are non-refundable and non-transferable; event happens rain or shine. Read complete details here: http://changeofpace.com/event/davis-stampede-2/#Refund-Policy
