Stampede Road Race: race report

On Sunday, I ran the Stampede Road Race 10k for the first time. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a race ambassador for it. 

Package pick up

I was volunteering at package pick up on Friday night, so it was super easy to pick up. Most people were in and out of Strides within ten minutes to get their package. In the package, there was: race shirt, macro bar, oatmeal, face wipes, and a couple other samples.

Race day 

The 10km race started at 8am, so I left the house just after 7am. There is lots of parking at the nearby high school and in the surrounding neighbourhood. The half marathon started at 7:20am and the 5km started at 8:15am. A quick bathroom stop and said hi to a friend before it was time to line up!

The race course was beautiful! The views of the Glenmore reservoir were gorgeous and took my mind off the pain of running a 10km race! We also got to run on the new pathway which was nice. The last bit of the race was on the track at Glenmore track, which was fun to finish on. I finished in 51:10 and was pretty happy with that!

After the race 

Once I crossed the finish line and got my medal, I met up with a couple friends who also ran in the race. We lined up for the delicious scones, pancakes and sausages. Well worth running 10kms for! 

They also have kids races (different lengths depending on their age), which was so cute! I helped out at the finish giving the kids their goodie bags. 

Thank you again to the race committee for letting me be a part of the race and race day!

  1. You did awesome! That’s a speedy 10k! That’s cool that it finishes on a track. The Des Moines marathon has you run around a track around the mid way point which is pretty cool. The post race meal sounded amazing!! Way better than the typical banana and other stuff at races!
