Chatfield Western Days Stampede Aug. 12, 2017

The 23nd running of the Western Days Stampede on Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017, will for the third year in a row be run along Chatfield's scenic Lost Creek Hiking Trail.

The course features hills, valleys, fields and creek crossings. The event offers 10K and 2-mile trail races and a free 1-mile fun run. There will also be a team competition. With your one registration fee you can run either or both of the races (and then cool down with the fun run!) and compete as both an individaul and on a team.

The 10K and 2-mile races are point-to-point and will be chip timed by Wayzataresults.com. T-shirts are Dri-fit.

The Stampede is scheduled for Saturday morning, Aug. 12, during Western Days, Chatfield's community festival. The starting gun for the 10K race will go off at 8 a.m., with the two-mile race at about 9:30 a.m. The free one-mile fun run follows. Buses leave for the starting line 15 minutes before race time.

Team competition will be open (no age groups) and will be in three classes - male, female and co-ed - in both the 10K and 2-mile races. Each team must have four runners. Each runs the full distance of the race (it's not a relay). The team with the lowest combined time of its four entrants wins.
