This is a local race event held at Laura S. Walker State Park, a great facility that has camping, fishing, boating and real bathrooms. This race is a 10k (or a 5k Relay) race that takes place on a unique course of trails. The race benefits the Childers Family YMCA of Waycross and the proceeds support Camp Reveille.
This is a great opportunity for local runners, walkers, or people who just want to have a fun- filled Saturday in the Swamp. Awards are given to top female and male finishers. Overall masters and grand masters awards will also be given for top male and female. Overall relay team will receive an award as well as the top five in each age group for male and female.
There will be a 1 mile fun run for all and this is a great way for all ages and abilities to support the cause.
The cost is $20 for the 10k and relay ($20 each) and only $5 for the 1 mile run. There is also a ghost runner option that allows a donation without participating. Pickup of race registrations can be found at the desk of the YMCA or printed out from the Okefenokee Track and Cycle page on Facebook.
Remember, if you would like to become a member of the YMCA Track Club, there are forms available at the YMCA as well. You can also sign up on for a quick and easy way to register for the Swamp Run.
