6th Annual Fall Stampede

NEW Date: Saturday, October 14th, 2017
NEW Location: Tampa Bay Downs


The 6th Annual Fall Stampede Presented by Chick-fil-A is held every September in acknowledgment of Childhood cancer. Due to Hurricane Irma, this race has been MOOved to OCTOBER 14th, 2017 at Tampa Bay Downs!!

The event includes a 5K Run, 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk, a Mascot Race, photo opportunities with the Chick-fil-A cows, and a post-race party in the Family Fun Zone including Chick-fil-A food, games, and great prizes.

Plus, this year, we’ve added a NEW component for out-of-town supporters and racers called the VIRTUAL RACE so that anyone from outside of the Tampa Bay Area can partake in this fun event to contribute toward a great cause.

Chick-fil-A has been a sponsor and partner in this event from its inception in 2012. The Fall Stampede grew from 800 runners to over 1,500 runners and has raised approximately $307,500 in net proceeds within the last 5 years.
