Run the muddy Parris Island Swamp Romp

Parris Island Swamp Romp

Check out the lowcountry's dirtiest race, the Swamp Romp on Saturday, October 20, at MCRD Parris Island.

This isn't your run-of-the-mill mud run! While military discount is available, this race is especially amazing because it’s open to the public. It is a rare opportunity to see some behind the scenes areas of Parris Island (Marine Corps Recruit Depot— this is where “We Make Marines”).

Swamp Romp is a 5 mile total sensory experience. Become immersed in combat scenarios and sound effects as you run through the swamp, wade through mud pits and overcome obstacles. Like Swamp Romp on Facebook to see photos of previous races!

Check in at 8:30 a.m. and at 10 the race begins at MCRD Parris Island.

This may be an individual event or a group event. Teams consist of 6 members.

  • Active Duty/Retiree Team: $132 for 6 person team
