Join us for the 9th Annual Buffalo Stampede Half-Marathon & 5K Races designed for ALL runners! The Half-Marathon course is gently rolling, scenic, relatively flat, fast, and takes you through open country and past neighborhoods and parks. It has a downhill 2-mile finish, and offers you a great chance for a PR and a tune-up for marathons. The 5K follows the first 1.55 miles of the Half-Marathon course. Courses are out and back and offer a safe route well marked by N-Line Traffic Management. Cheer Stations will be along the route to encourage you... with cash prizes going to the best cheer stations! The Half-Marathon begins at 7:30 AM and the 5K begins at 7:45 AM. The course closes at 11am.

AFTER the race, enjoy Boonville Days, Brazos County’s ONLY living history festival of frontier skills demonstrations, re-enactors, art, and music. This year, we have expanded our booths and our Chuck-Wagon Cook-off! Fun for the entire family, festive Boonville Days activities are inside and outside the Museum.
