The Island Park Area Chamber of Commerce founded the Sawtelle Stampede in July, 1997 to provide a fun, healthy and family-oriented event on the July 4th weekend. Our event is for everyone. Individual walkers, joggers and the elite runner. We encourage and offer discounts for teams of families, friends, clubs and organizations. Local business, Mountain Mayhem, has donated a *FREE* water trampoline rental, to the largest "pre-registered" team.
Set for Saturday, July 5, 2014, the Stampede starts at 9:00 a.m. Register for the Half Marathon run, 10k run, 5k walk/run or 1k kid's walk/run events. The course takes us on dirt forest service roads and trails through the scenic Caribou-Targhee National Forest. With plenty of shade, a rambling stream, breathtaking scenery, enthusiastic and upbeat water stations, this course is truly one of a kind.
We kick off our morning with a Patriotic Tribute. A welcoming - morning innovation, our nation's colors are presented and our National Anthem is performed live by one of Island Park's very own vocalists. A rendition that should not be missed. All this with the spectacular Sawtelle Mountain as the backdrop.
This event is a fundraiser for the Island Park Non-Motorized Trail Project. This activity is under permit with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. All participants will be contributing to the development of the recreational trail system. Our vision is to have a non-motorized trail from Henry's Lake to Harriman State Park. We have joined forces with the United States Forest Service to make this vision a reality. In fact, last summer, we were very excited that the first section along the Box Canyon Trail was completed.
