It is with great pain that we must announce the postponement of the Wilson Swamp Stomp to Saturday May 13.
2/3 of the race course is under 4-6 feet of water and officials are telling us that Contentnea creek is at flood stage and not expected to crest until Saturday meaning the waters won’t recede prior to our event. Faced with difficult choices, we evaluated options for altering the course but too much of the adventure, fun, and challenge would be missed and we didn’t want to cancel. Postponement was the best option.
We hope that all can adjust plans and join us to race on Saturday May 13th but understand that may not be possible. If you can’t participate, here are your options:
- E-mail me at email@example.com and receive free entry into the 2018 Wilson Swamp Stomp, next year (date to be determined)
- Transfer your registration to another person. E-mail me at the same address and let me know who will take your place.
We apologize for this but did what we thought was best for all. We look forward to an awesome and muddy event in two weeks.
On behalf of the race team,
We have a major change for 2017 with the Swamp Stomp. We are changing dates and location!
We will be partnering with Greenfield School at their campus which is ideal for a Swamp Stomp, as they have great facilities and they back up to a swamp.
We are moving it to April 29th to both offer cooler temperatures and swampier conditions during the Spring. We are excited for the changes and know you will be too.
Presented by: Bridgestone and Merck
