As one of the biggest and most respected rodeos in the Pacific Northwest, the Omak Stampede and Suicide Race is one event that rodeo fans across the United States look forward to attending each year.

Whether fans have one favorite event or love to experience them all, there’s no doubt this PRCA rodeo will be one to remember.
Similar to just as it was way back in 1935, the Suicide Race is a highlight that fans of the Omak Stampede simply don’t want to miss. Run on a “no holds barred” course, competitors ride their horses 225 feet down a bluff to the Okanogan River, then swim or wade across and then make a mad dash of 500 yards to the finish line, which is in the center of the Stampede arena. Needless to say, this is one event that definitely gets the fan’s juices flowing.
Along with offering fans plenty of excitement, fans who attend the PRCA Omak Stampede know they will be helping a variety of charities as well. Among the most popular is the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” night, which encourages everyone to wear pink in support of those fighting breast cancer. In addition to this charity, many others are also supported, including food banks and various education organizations.

Whether it’s bull riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing, team roping, bareback riding, or any of the other events, there’s no doubt this year’s PRCA Omak Stampede and Suicide Race is poised to be the best ever. With its world-class competitors, non-stop action, and incredible array of events, the Stampede and Suicide Race will test the skills of each and every participant, ensuring fans will leave this year’s event wanting more and more.
