Dismal Swamp Stomp Half Marathon

Starting 8AM April 12th is the 8th Annual Dismal Swamp Stomp Half Marathon presented by Chesapeake Regional Medical Center. The flat 13.1-mile asphalt course will take runners on a spectacular jouney through lush,  mysterious landscape and rich history. The Dismal Swamp Canal Trail off Route 17 offers runner forested wetlands and a peaceful paved path along the wilderness of the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.
