Are you ready for Swamp Stomp Half Marathon 2022?!?
***We’re excited to announce we are adding a 1 mile fun run for the kiddos! They will receive a shirt and bib and all finishers will receive an award!***
Get the kids active with our brand new 1 mile fun run! This will be an out and back course starting and finishing at the 1/2 marathon starting line. Registration includes a free shirt, bib, and a finisher's award. Parents are allowed to run with their young child.
The Swamp Stomp 1/2 Marathon is a flat and fast course that winds through the beautiful Graywood Plantation neighborhood of south Lake Charles. We received a lot of positive feedback from the residents and runners last year and are very happy to run this course again! We’re thrilled to feel so welcome at Graywood and are looking forward to the great crowd support again!
The race will start and finish at Graywood Park located at: 3860 Gray Market Dr., Lake Charles, LA 70605. There will also be plenty of opportunities for your friends and family to cheer you on along the course! There will be plenty of water stops and port-a-potties along the course. There will be plenty of food, drinks, fun, and music for all our runners.
We are happy to continue our tradition of awarding jackets to all FINISHERS! This means you must finish the race to receive your jacket. Jackets will be available for pickup at the finish area.
You MUST register online by October 27th, 2022 to guarantee that you will receive your jacket at the finish. We have to make our orders early to guarantee they will be delivered on time for the race. You may check with us after the race to see if we have any extras, but we absolutely cannot guarantee we will have extra jackets in your size. There will be NO special orders for extra jackets or shirts! So hurry and sign up to guarantee yours before it’s too late!
We're looking forward to seeing you all out there at this new and exciting venue!!

We work incredibly hard to put on our races and we personally understand the training and hard work our runners undergo, so the last thing we’d ever want to do is have to cancel. We will run, rain or shine! Your safety as well as our volunteers is our utmost priority. If we foresee dangerous conditions that warrant cancellation, we will update you as soon as a decision is made via email and on our FaceBook page.
