The Stampede returns to the fall this season on Sunday September 14th. We will be adding more obstacles this year, including monkey bars, a rock climbing wall, and a vertical tire climb. We will introduce a new concept to the Stampede; we will be adding a team wave. Each team must be made up of four members. The last person of your team to cross the finish will represent your teams time, you must win as a team! We will be incorporating some team themed obstacles, you will need your team to complete these, unless your part Ox. Registration is now open!
Thanks to everyone that came out to run the Stampede this year. I’d like to thank our awesome sponsors; Patrick Stepanovsky with Huntington Bank in Newark, Tara Brown with Liberty Mutual in New Albany, Doug and Sue at the Jimmy John’s in Newark/Heath, Zach Webster with Second Sole in Gahanna. We plan to add some different stuff next year, amongst adding some new obstacles, we will be adding a team wave, and possibly and Elite challenge wave. We are also considering moving our date to around fathers day in June. We will keep you posted.

If you need to register, you need to arrive an hour ahead. 1.5 mile wave at 10, 3.1 waves at 11-11:30-12:00. Awards will follow promptly after the course has been cleared.

Registration/Packet Pickup starts at 9:30. We will allow people to register up to 11:30. Day of registration will be $40 becuse the flyer didnt really spell that out very well. With your packet you will have a bib that is your scoring chip, do not bend or crease it or you will not be scored. It will come with safety pins, it needs to be on the front of your shirt. Where a shirt.
