We are very excited about this year's event. Online registration is now open. The Stampede, a fun run or walk, is sponsored by the the Island Park Area Chamber of Commerce.
Set for Saturday, July 7, 2012 @ 9:00am. Includes half marathon/run, 10k/run, 5k walk/run and our special 1K kid's run. The course winds through the beautiful Caribou-Targhee National Forest, all on scenic forest service trails with Sawtelle Mountain as our backdrop.
Besides participating in a fun, healthy activity, runners and walkers will contribute to the development of the recreational trails system in Island Park. This project is dedicated to a non-motorized trail from Henry's Lake to Harriman State Park.
Cash prizes and medals will be awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers in each division. Top 3 kids in the 1k receive gift cards donated by the Island Park Library Friends and all kids participating will receive ribbons.
Water stations have a competition of their own happening. Our water stations literally ~ Rock the Forest! Stations play motivating music, decorated and staffed by area businesses and groups. Runners and walkers get to vote for the most patriotic, enthusiastic and inspirational station.
