Stampede & the George Parrott Migration both start and finish at Rio
Americano High School in Sacramento, California. Held on the first Sunday after Labor Day, this
local tradition kicks off the start of fall’s racing season. The fast and certified course is part of the
Buzz Oates Run Sac Race Series. It is
one of the four events that the Buffalo Chips Running Club sponsors each
year. Along with the Stampede, Migration, and the 5-Mile Relay, the
morning’s festivities include the popular free kids run that is overseen by Rio
Americano’s High School cross country team.
