1st Annual Swamp Classic 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run!
Proceeds/Donations will go to Nancy Tatum to help with medical expenses. Any donation will be greatly appreciated but, more than anything Nancy and her family need your prayers.
Nancy was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF) in 2018 and had three heart surgeries in 2019. She is a fighter and continued working two jobs (she's a nurse) until the COVID pandemic hit in March 2020 when she was forced to give up her second job at a local nursing home to protect her health.
In October 2020 she was involved in a four-car wreck and her car was totaled. Now her family of five is down to a single cab truck. As she has to have a vehicle for work and for doctor appointments (locally and in Jacksonville), they are in need of a second vehicle.
Please pray for Nancy and her family and donate only if you are able.
- This is an in-person race.

You can sign up online at https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Waycross/SwampClassic5K from October 26th to December 5th. Online registration closes December 5th but you can still register in person on race day. 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, and the t-shirt and medal are not guaranteed. In person registration and pre-registration pick-up will take place in front of the porch of Swamp Road Baptist Church (SRBC). Look for the tents & signs.
Early Packet Pick-Up:
Early packet pick-up will take place on Friday, December 11th from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm at the SRBC social hall which is located behind the church on the left. There will be signage. If you pre-registered for the race but didn’t utilize early packet pick-up, look for the Pre-Registration tent & sign in front of the SRBC porch.
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 half way 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.
