The Stampede 5K is in its 8th 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, except where it enters and leaves the stadium.
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 March 1, 2019.
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 3, from 6-8 OR on race day beginning at 8:30 am at the stadium.
Trophies and Gift Certificates will be awarded to:
5K Overall Male and Female Runners
Age Group Winners will receive Medals and Gift Certificates

SPORTS FUN DAY INFORMATION
New 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. For $5 (free for those already participating in the race and adults with paying children) you can have fun in a jump house and work with Middle Creek athletes to learn how to throw the perfect spiral football pass, learn how to serve a volleyball or help perfect your cheer jumps, for example. At this time the particular sports teams participating have not been finalized, so check back with us.
In 2018, William Gray was the overall winner at this event finishing in 17:57. Heather Klein won the women’s competition finishing in 23:22.
Seth Eslinger holds the men’s course mark of 16:03 set in 2015. Haley Juno-Galdes (20:35) holds the women’s course record.
