The Okefenokee 10K Swamp Run, presented by Chic-fil-A is one of Georgia's oldest continuous races. You will run/walk a unique all-dirt course on wooded trails, a real cross-country swamp adventure!
Our low low $30 EARLY entry fee includes a stylish Tech Shirt (pre-registered only) AND Chic-fil-A breakfast after the race! Even though we are in "the swamp", we have REAL bathrooms too. Childcare is provided with a minimal fee.
Awards will be presented to the top M/F Overall, Masters, Grand Masters and Senior Grand Masters!
Age group awards are 5 DEEP!! in 5 year increments, with the last age group 70 and above.
Our One mile event can be Fun for the entire family! This is for great causes, as a portion of the money goes to the YMCA's Camp Reveille, and a portion of the money will directly to the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind.
