There are three fundamental reasons why we are so enthusiastic about promoting the Dubbo Stampede experience.
We love running
We’re runners too and passionate about pounding the pavement (or dirt track!) We love promoting a sport that has long lasting positive health benefits.
We want you to be healthy
It’s no secret that Australia is suffering from an obesity epidemic. So, to help break the chain of generational obesity, we promote healthier ways of living. We want adults and kids who participate in the Dubbo Stampede to finish with a smile and a healthier outlook on life!
We’re building a community
The Dubbo Stampede is all about bringing people together in an active, positive and inclusive environment. We encourage everyone to participate, from walkers and plodders to elite runners and athletes. For those who aren’t able to participate, you can still join in the fun by cheering on the runners or by volunteering to help make the day run as smoothly as possible.
How we help
The Dubbo Stampede is a not-for-profit event run to improve the health and wellbeing of our community. We do this in a number of ways...
Indigenous Marathon Project
We are proud to support the Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) as our partner cause. The IMP is a healthy education initiative that builds leaders in our Indigenous communities. It promotes running, healthy lifestyles and compliments other Indigenous community health initiatives.
River lighting project
We're excited to be working with Dubbo Regional Council and the Titan Macquarie Mud Run on the Tracker Riley River Running Track lighting project.
This will see light poles erected along the Tracker Riley walking path to create a safer environment for people wanting to get fit and healthy. The Tracker Riley path is one of Dubbo's greatest community assets. This project will make the river more accessible for more people.
Community running groups
We've supported a number of not-for-profit groups whose goals and intentions lead to a healthier and more active community. These include Dubbo parkrun and the Vixens and Kits.
