Entry Fee: $20

The Ruffalo Stampede is designed to allow our dogs to participate in the weekend.  

The 1K course is flat, fast and great for dogs off all sizes and capabilities and will provide a great photo opportunity as they finish through the arch. This is a participation event and is not a RACE. 

 The event is limited in size and will cost $20 per dog.  Every dog must be accompanied by their owner/coach and must be kept on a leash.  

Each athlete will receive

  • Custom Ruffalo medal

  • Bandanna

  • The handler will receive custom poop bags and must clean up after their athlete.

1K Course


Proceeds will go towards sponsoring a dog for the Erie County K9 unit in appreciation for their support in keeping us safe not only on race weekend but every day of the year.

If you are unable to participate, donations can still be made on our donation site.  

New this year, we’re adding a “second lap” BARk Crawl to the event that will kick
off right after the “Ruffalo Stampede,” and allow both four legged and two legged
participant to visit four local bars on Chippewa and Delaware to celebrate
successfully completing the race. Each stop on the BARk Crawl will feature a
unique selfie station for participants and their pets to capture this occasion as
well as fun dog and human treats.

Ruffalo Participants ( two legged and four legged) can visit each
stop at anytime between 1pm and 4pm. Each location will have a
unique selfie station for Ruffalo participants to capture the moment
AND each location will feature a unique giveaway
