Deal Days for the Davis Stampede end Thursday, 11/30

And that’s a wrap on 2023! 

Our 2023 season has come to a close, and to those of you that chose to race with us this year: Thank You. This past year was our first full year back outside of pandemic restrictions, and it was a good one! The feeling of excitement, accomplishment, and joy you feel when you cross the race finish line is the same way we feel after putting on a successful event. Always a little room for growth, a little introspection; maybe training could be changed up, maybe race day execution could be tweaked here and there, but all in all, the goal has been reached, and the success for us lies in the smiling, happy race finishers. It’s an honor to produce community events that bring people together for fun and exercise, while supporting local non-profits at the same time.

Now as an adult, she has returned (by her own choice) and now serves as the volunteer and site coordinator. In addition, she has also been instrumental in the 2024 design and transitioning of our new website. We are fortunate to have her tackle one of the more critical areas that are considered the backbone of any event, volunteers. Maya resides in Davis and In her spare time she spends time as a dog trainer while simultaneously assisting other local nonprofit organizations such as the Yolo County SPCA and Cancer Champions.
