Our unique running festival gives you health, wellbeing and community. And monkeys! 


We are the oldest major running festival to run through a zoo in NSW. Walk or run through Dubbo's Taronga Western Plains Zoo to get a taste of the world.

We've got animals! Thousands of them. Hundreds of species. Lemurs, giraffes, hippos, lions, apes, spider monkeys (the cute little ones), rhinos... you get the idea. Come along and check them out!

Whether you are keen to walk or wheel 5.3km, run 10km, or smash out a half or full marathon, we have something for you!

Make sure you don't miss out on our early bird offer. To keep in touch, you can sign up to our newsletter or like us on Facebook.

The Dubbo Stampede is also part of the NSW Regional Distance Running Championships. Visit the NSWDRC website to see how you can continue to grow your running enjoyment!
