Time to sign up for the 2015 Swedish Stomp


Although there is still snow on the ground, the members of the BH Old Settlers’ Association are busy making plans to welcome runners from near and far to our annual foot race through town.
 Come and make a little history of your own;
be a part of the Stomp on April 25, 2015!

Enjoy a 5k run/walk through history in this charming 19th century village. Descendants of the original settlers welcome you to the 20th Annual Bishop Hill Swedish Stomp & Skamparoo.  A unique hand carved wooden boot goes to the overall winner in both the male and female categories.  Post race refreshments include a Swedish feast of homemade muffins and sweets, hard tack, cheese, pickled herring and fresh fruit. The Bishop Hill Old Settler's Association organizes the Stomp with proceeds going to help restore and maintain the 1861 Colony School and grounds.
For your convenience, a registry has been created for you to fill out and submit your application online. Click the  ad at the right or, if you prefer, download and print an application and return it to the BHOSA. Race day registration starts starts bright and early at 7am. We hope to see you then!
