Chepstow Stampede is an event that suits the whole family, and is open to all ages! This is a tough course with obstacles to test your speed, strength and endurance over 5km and 10km distances. However, it is the perfect course to make your start in obstacle running with a team of friends or colleagues over the 5k course.
The course has been designed to introduce the novice to the physical demands of cross country running, whilst also challenging the hardiest elite runners. It includes manmade horse hurdles and maximises the natural obstacles of the stunning surrounding landscape, including ditches and mud pits.
You’ll scale steep banks, conquer leg-burning hills and run through water as well as running through the picturesque surroundings of Chepstow Racecourse and Piercefield Park, while taking in beautiful sections of the Wye Valley Walk – if you have any energy left to enjoy the view!
The Chepstow Stampede is for all ages, as well as the adult sections we have “Mini-Stampede” which is open to children aged 5 to 9, and 10 to 13 years old. We also have a category for the 5k race, which is now open to 14 – 15 year olds. The minimum age requirement for the 5k is 16 years old, and for the 10k is 18 years old.
