Swamp Challenge Athletes,
We are so excited to have you participating at the 2017 Swamp Challenge! Congrats on being one of the 300 athletes participating in our 8th year of the Swamp Challenge.
It is because of you that this event has become what it is: a celebration of community within the heart of the Gator Nation. Our goal is to provide a one-of-a-kind experience to all athletes. We realize that this event would not be possible without you and want to make sure that you have all of the information to make your day as easy as possible. Included in this guide is information on the venue, schedules and competition information.
Athlete check-in is mandatory for all athletes. Athlete check-in will be Friday, April 21st from 4pm – 9pm at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Athletes will receive “swag bags” and be able to shop Dick’s Sporting Goods with discount coupons. If you’re unable to make athlete check-in on Friday, we will have late athlete check-in available Saturday morning at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium – North Ticket Office from 7:00am – 8:00am.
Competition will begin at 8:30am on the North Lawn on Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Included in this information packet are maps with information on athlete village, vendor village, parking, start/finish locations and food options.
Make sure to stick around and join us for the Official Swamp Challenge After Party at First Magnitude Brewing Company! After an exciting day of fitness on the Florida Gator’s home field, make sure to join friends and fellow athletes for a local brew at First Magnitude.
Wishing each and every one of you best of luck competing!
