Virtual Stampede

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Stampede that is normally run during the weekend of Buffalo Grove Days has been canceled.  So, instead, we are bringing this year's event to you virtually.  Get active while socially distancing, and join the Buffalo Grove Park District and Friends of the Parks Foundation in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Buffalo Grove Stampede, and first ever Virtual Stampede.  You can run or walk at your own pace, whether it is on a treadmill, or out exploring your neighborhood.  You don’t want to miss out on the fun!  Gather your friends and neighbors, and have a blast participating in our 5K, 10K or 25K.  For more information, please contact Brian O’Malley at 847.353.7529 or

Registration is open. The race begins on August 3, and continues through August 31.
