Swarm and Stampede

The 14th Annual Swarm and Stampede takes place on October 18th at College of Marin, Indian Valley Campus.

Rancho had won the trophy for ten years of this event and graciously lost it to Pleasant Valley in October 2016.

Our proud Eagles would enjoy the challenge of bringing it back to Rancho this year!  This event is a special opportunity for the community and Novato schools to come together in the fall among ten separate races on the trails and in the grass according to age.
