It's Time To Stomp In Bishop Hill!

Join Us!
Now in its 21st year, the Stomp will be held
Saturday, April 23rd
As the daffodils push through the winter brush, The Old Settlers are sweeping out the old schoolhouse in preparation for the first of our 2016 sponsored events, the Swedish Stomp.

Held rain or shine -

But so much better when it shines!
This is a timed 5 kilometer race open to all runners age 7 to 107! Run or walk the course through the streets and bucolic countryside of our historic village. The race begins at the Bishop Hill Colony School. Children age 6 and under are invited to participate in the 1/3K Skamperoo at 10am. Registration begins at 7am; race time is 9am. It is sponsored by the Bishop Hill Old Settlers’ Association; the proceeds will be used for the preservation and maintenance of the Old Colony School.
