About This Activity

Join us for the 9th Annual Dismal Swamp Stomp Half Marathon and the 7th Annual Children's Half-Mile Cub Run in beautiful Chesapeake, Virginia, on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The flat 13.1-mile course will take runners on a spectacular wilderness journey through lush, mysterious landscape and rich history.

New this year 5K run/walk For the first year the Dismal Swamp Stomp will also incorporate a 5K run/walk. The 5K will start and finish in the same locations as the half marathon, and will start 5 minutes after the start of the half marathon. All entrants receive a race premium, custom finisher medal and age group winners will receive custom awards.

Stomp through forested wetlands on a peaceful paved path along the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Running parallel to the course is the Dismal Swamp Canal, part of the famed Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
