Welcome to the Rainier Stampede

Rainier Stampede (previously called the CG Run) is a Washington Army National Guard (WAARNG) collective event occurring on Nov. 5, 2022 at Yakima Training Center. This event will exercise critical mobilization support functions while enriching the service of, and providing unified purpose, direction and motivation for all soldiers of the Washington Army National Guard. Approximately 3,000 Washington Army National Guard soldiers from across the state will travel to the Yakima Training Center for a multi-facet event and leadership development summit.

This event/run is timed with the Veterans Day holiday. It’s the first time in more than 2 years – due to the COVID-19 pandemic and significant overseas deployments (to Afghanistan, Kuwait, Ukraine and Poland) – the majority of our Army Guard force can gather together to honor our fallen, participate in a division-level run and attend any type of leadership summit. We will also have 30 of our Joint Services Support providers, numerous employers and other community resources for soldiers attending. Our Washington National Guard Museum Historians will be providing select unit history assets to provide exposure and educate the force on our more than 165 years of Washington Guard history. There is an opportunity to compete for individual and unit recognition in Army Combat Fitness Test-style competition. This is also an opportunity to have fun, learn and grow together as a Guard.
