The Swamp Fox Ultra @ Buck Hall Landing Road
Nov 4 – Nov 5 all-day

Welcome to the 1st Annual Swamp Fox Ultra. This event is a foot race along two sections of the Palmetto Trail; The Awendaw Passage and the Swamp Fox Passage. At its longest, the course for this event is 52.93 miles of mixed use trails and short sections of Fire Road. The event traverses through the heart of the Francis Marion National Forest.

The format for the event is very different from current ultra events. There is only 1 Aid Station with food…and it is located at Buck Hall Recreation Area, the Start and Finish of the event.

When I was growing up, every time I tried something new or grew frustrated with something, my Father would always tell me… “If it is to be, it’s up to me”. It would drive me crazy. Yet, this saying is actually the foundation of The Swamp Fox Ultra.

If it is to be…It is up to you!

Most trail events that are currently on the market, offer fully stocked aid stations at predetermined locations along the trail. This event will not offer that. Instead, roughly every 6-7 miles, I will have a checkpoint that will consist of a couple volunteers to check you in and out…water and Doc Scotts Recovery Water RX. That’s it, no food.

The reason… Complete the event on your own. Plan accordingly and rely on yourself to either pass or fail.

This won’t be too difficult for the shorter distances. However, it will become a bit more complicated as you run past 50 miles.
You have the choice to either have a crew that will follow you from checkpoint to checkpoint or pack drop bags to be placed along the route. I will ensure your drop bags get to the locations you want.

All events Start and Finish at Buck Hall Recreation Area in McClellanville, SC.

Feedback From Our Customers

  • I am so thankful for the help and service I received. Natalie put me in some awesome shoes that fit properly and really help my health issues. I suffer from lower back problems and neuropathy in my left leg. These are the best shoes I've ever had!
  • Never had people more knowledgeable sell me shoes before. Usually its, "Yes, this is a shoe and we have them." I went in for an insert but learned my shoe was just the wrong size. Got some new ones and the feel great. Thanks for the kicks. I'll be back when I need new ones.
  • I'm so happy with my shoes and the service. I was totally wearing the wrong size shoe. I will be going back for another pair as soon as they come in. Thanks so much for your help and fun sense of humor.
  • Can't say enough about how helpful Carolyn and Brent have been in helping me stay in shoes that fit my running needs. And the Sat. morning runs with Marc and Brent are superb!
  • Thanks Carolyn and the rest of The Foot Store staff for all of your help in making sure I had the proper footwear. You and your staff could not have been more pleasant to deal with and I intend on sharing my experience with all of my running club friends!
