The Swamp Stomp is a 5-mile run and a 4-mile walk. There is also a 1-mile fun run option. The race itself is run on the trails of Hawthorn Park. The trails are generally in good shape however the weather can always make it a bit swampy so look out for alligators. The course is always well marked with plenty of course volunteers. After the race, stick around for awards and the our post-race breakfast taco bar!
You must preregister by April 6 to receive a shirt. Online registration will continue until Wednesday, April 12 at midnight but no shirt will be provided.
Awards will be given; including overall awards, age group awards, and walker awards. Awards are based on 5-year age groups. The number of awards per age group will be determined based on the pre-registered numbers in each age group. Awards range from 1 to 3 per age group. Winners will be announced at Swamp Stomp; however awards will be personalized for each winner, so actual awards will need to be picked up at a later specified date.
There are also walker awards that are not age based or gender based. The number of walker awards will be based on the number of pre-registered walkers and will be awarded based on the first walker across the finish line and so on. IF YOU ARE SIGNED UP AS A WALKER, PLEASE DO NOT RUN! We have competitive walkers who work hard to win the race and it wouldn’t be fair for a someone to run part of the race and beat out a competitive walker who walked the complete event.
