The Stampede 5K is in its 9th year supporting the non-profit Stampede Club as the athletic booster club at Middle Creek High School in Apex, NC. Our race course begins and finishes in the stadium and works through a residential area adjacent to the school. The course is nearly flat.
The event kicks off at 10 am, with gates opening at 8:30 for onsite registration and packet pickup.
Registration is $30 for the general public and only $20 for any Wake County Public School student/staff and anyone 18 and younger. Note the registration fees increases by $5 after April 1, 2020.
The first 150 persons to pre-register are guaranteed a goodie bag including your pre-ordered t-shirt size. Remaining entrants are not guaranteed a bag or your preference of shirt size. Late entrants can register and pre-registered runners can pick up their packets at Omega Sports in Crossroads Plaza, Cary, NC on April 22, from 6-8 OR on race day beginning at 8:30 am at the stadium.

SPORTS FUN DAY INFORMATION
Again this year, we will also be hosting a Sports Fun Day within the stadium to keep spectators entertained and to open this up to the larger community. The part of the event is FREE for children. They can have fun in a jump house and work with Middle Creek athletes to learn different skills directly from the talented members of MCHS. At this time the particular sports teams participating have not been finalized, so check back with us.
