Stomp the Swamp 5K

Welcome to the 9th Annual Stomp the Swamp 5k. You are about to participate in one of the most unique and challenging 5k courses in the Midlands.
The 5k course is 1 loop around beautiful River Bluff Campus, allowing athletes to run over nature bridges, nature paths, and to begin and end in our state of the art football stadium, The Swamp. This also allows athletes to pass aid stations every 1 mile and spectators to be able to see their runners. We will have over 100 volunteers on the course, and the campus will be closed to all moving traffic throughout the race – your safety is our number one concern. We will have music and live video feed on the jumbotron. Proceeds from the event benefit the River Bluff High School Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Teams. Professional Timing Service provided by Strictly Running Timing.
