The results for April 5th's Swamp Stomp 5 Mile Run, 4 Mile Walk, and 1 Mile Fun Run can be found here.



SWAMP STOMP INFORMATION
 

(updated 3/25/14)                  
        

The Swamp Stomp is now in its 19th year. It is one of the 6 races directed and sponsored by the Wabash Valley Roadrunners. We pride ourselves in producing well-organized races orchestrated from the athlete’s perspective. They are well marked with many route marshals and mile splits. The Swamp Stomp features a 5 mile run and a 4 mile walk as well as a 1 mile fun run. The route is 75% trail, it can be a little muddy in spots depending on the weather but never even close to impassable.

Mike and Buddy have always tried to be somewhat innovative. We will once again have the Awesome Omelet Bar after the race (Omelets cooked to order). Last year we began to offer cash($50.00) to the division winners and we will continue to do so. The divisions are male and female, Overall, Masters (40-49), Grand Masters (50-59), and new this year Senior Masters (60 +). We offer a full range of age division awards up 70+.

We highly recommend this event to any walker and runner. Any member of a RRCA Running club is eligible for our club discount, just write your club name. We normally have 200-300 participants. In spite of all of the mega-events out there its still hard to beat a good old club race. Support your local Running Club.

RUNNING/WALKING SAFETY EVENT
 

(updated 3/21/14)                  
        

On April 12 ,2014 from 3-5PM, the Wabash Valley Road Runners and Vigo County YMCA will co-host an event to help teach running/walking safety.

There will be 3 areas of discussion during the event:

1) General Outdoor Running/Walking Safety (including general rules of the road, running safe & smart, and animal encounters)

2) First Aid and Injuries

3) Self-Defense (this area will include some live demonstrations of self-defense maneuvers in the event of an attack).

We think this will be a very informative program for those who choose to attend. The event is free and is open to all members of the community. In order to ensure that we have adequate space available, we are asking that those interested in attending RSVP for the event before April 9th by e-mailing elliecaldwell@me.com. You may also send any questions to the same e-mail address.
