5K Walk

5K Walk

An nice out-and-back course of exactly 3.1 miles. Starts and finishes in the Village of Arroyo Grande on Short Street behind the Swinging Bridge and heads out Branch Mill Road to a turn around point just past Coach Road. The course is relatively flat – a couple of slight hills at about 1.2 miles and just past the turn around point. Water station at mile 2.

All participants and volunteers receive refreshments – including our legendary loads of delicious, fresh, locally grown strawberries!


If you think that you might want to run, even just a little, during the 5K Walk event, PLEASE SIGN UP FOR THE 5K Run. We will have competitive walkers participating in this event for time & place – if you are signed up for the walk, and are seen running you will NOT BE SCORED for this event.


1st place male and female 12 & under, 13-18, 19-49, 50 and over.


The Strawberry Stampede features a state-of-the-art electronic scoring system. All participants will receive an electronic scoring chip, which can be attached to a shoelace (or other garment). Finish time and position are automatically recorded electronically when you cross the finish line. Scoring chips will be collected in the finish chute.


Racers who are pre-registered can pick up their race numbers on race morning beginning at 6:45AM at the start/finish area (adjacent to the Village Green, corner of Short Street and Nelson). We will also accept race day registrations from 6:45 until 7:50AM.

Dogs, bicycles, in-line skates, skateboards, and scooters are not allowed on the race course.
