The 6th St. Albans Stampede is sadly cancelled.
It is with massive disappointment that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Stampede. While the Stampede course and number of runners lends itself to a level of social distancing, much of the atmosphere and the Stampede joy comes from the team camaraderie in the event village.
For the safety of all our runners, marshals and event team, and to preserve the integrity of this wonderful event, we feel our only option is not to go ahead.
We will come back stronger than ever in 2021!!
Save the date! 4th September 2021!
The St Albans Stampede is an ultra marathon running event, organised by the St Albans Striders running club, held in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, covering parts of Heartwood Forest and Nomansland Common.
The challenge is to cover the most amount of distance (in miles) over a designated time period of 12hrs – this can be undertaken solo, as a pair or as a team relay (up to 4, and up to 8 person options).
It’s worth noting that the category winners will be awarded on distance covered only. In other words, you don’t have to run the full 12hrs to have successfully completed the challenge. The 12hr duration is simply the maximum allowable time. All entrants, even those that run for 1-2hrs, will have successfully participated in the event and be awarded a medal for their efforts. And if participants from the 100 Marathon Club want to stop at marathon distance to record a successful completion, this is very much acceptable.
