Swamp Stomp 30-Hour Adventure Race

I was out on the race course this past weekend doing some final exploring and I have to say that this is one of my favorite areas that we have used for racing. It will be a true Swamp Stomp experience for all those who participate–challenging terrain mixed with options for some challenging navigation. I had a great time this past weekend navigating through trackless cypress swamp–spooking a huge red-tailed hawk and sneaking up on a large flock of turkeys as I slid through the vegetation boundary and into a grassy clearing.

Jessica deep within the bowels of the earth. Okay, maybe only 20 feet down.

The previous weekend, Jessica and I tested one of the major foot sections and we were impressed with the variety of terrain and unique features of the area–it is a run/trek not to be missed. Even though the temperatures were in the 30s, we had a great time and it reminded me of why I love to be out in the woods tromping through the bush and finding my way to cool places.

So, if you are looking for a challenge for your body, your mind and your friends, put together a team and register for the Swamp Stomp 30-Hour Adventure Race or the shorter, Son of Swamp Stomp–February 13 and 14.
