A race is a race, but how often do you get to run through a swamp? This Saturday is the Annual Dismal Swamp Stomp Half Marathon. It features a flat 13.1-mile asphalt course and promises unique and beautiful views of the swamp from the paved Canal Trail off Route 17.
If 13 miles is a bit much for you, the race will also have a 5k run/walk at the same location. If 3 miles is still too much (no judgments from us!) there will also be a Children’s Half Mile Cub Run. It’s a half mile out-and-back fun run for children ages 12 and under, but parents are welcome to run along side their children.
Each registered participant will receive a finisher’s medal when they cross the finish line.
But it’s not all about running. According to the website, this year’s live entertainment will consist of “face melting” rock’n roll by the band Dirty Toys. Also on hand will be the FM99 entourage including Rock Girl Marena. Stick around for great post race party with beer, music food and awards.
