The Strawberry Stampede May Return in 2023

The 2022 Strawberry Stampede has been cancelled. We are working to bring this iconic race back in 2023.

The Strawberry Stampede is an annual running event held in conjunction with the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Celebration. We offer three separate races, a 5K Run, a 10K Run, and a 5K Walk. Race day registration and check-in takes place at the corner of Short Street & Nelson Street and opens at 6:45am. Tons of fresh, locally grown strawberries for all runners following race!

Since 1987 the Strawberry Stampede has been held in conjunction with the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival. In 2020 the Strawberry Festival was renamed the Strawberry Celebration and was transformed into a smaller scale more localized event, now produced by the South County Chambers of Commerce. We are working to retool the Strawberry Stampede in order to continue the tradition of holding the Run in conjunction with the Strawberry Celebration.

Please check back for details on the future of the Strawberry Stampede!
