You can sign up online at https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Waycross/SwampClassic5K. Online registration closes on March 25th. It's $25 for the 5K and $15 for the 1 Mile Fun Run.
In-person registration will be open the morning of the race from 7:00 am - 7:45 am. If you register the day of the race please be aware it is cash ONLY. In-person registration and pre-registration pick-up will take place on the left side of Swamp Road Baptist Church (SRBC). Look for the tents & signs.
Both the 5k and the 1 Mile Fun Run will begin and end at Swamp Road Baptist Church. There will be plenty of parking at SRBC. The start/finish line will be well-marked in front of SRBC by a giant blue inflatable. Both the 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run courses will turn right upon leaving the SRBC parking lot and run on Swamp Road. There will be a water station available at the halfway point of the 5k.
Restrooms will be accessible inside Swamp Road Baptist Church.
There will be an awards ceremony after the 5k. Each participant will be given a slip of paper when they cross the finish line to take to the Timekeeper tent to fill in their name, age, gender, and time so we can tabulate the race results. There will be age group awards and an overall male and overall female award.
Please wear a mask and practice social distancing when you are at the registration area and after the race. We will not utilize staggered start times but we will allow for appropriate distancing at the starting line. SRBC is not held responsible if you contract COVID-19 before, during, or after the 5k or 1 Mile Fun Run.
