2018 Swedish Stomp Results: Fun was had by all!

They are off!
There were 74 entrants registered for the 2018 Stomp; a total of 64 runners and walkers undertook the 5K course. The crisp, sunny morning was invigorating. It was perfect race weather.
Our wind whipped banner
The 2018 Stomp was dedicated to the former BHOSA President, Cinda Anderson, who served as Race Director for more than 10 years. She passed away earlier this year. Cinda is fondly remembered by the organization's members and was much missed on race day.
The Stomp winds through beautiful Bishop Hill
Special thanks to BHOSA President, Randy Anderson, for stepping in and coordinating the event this year and to Mike Keup for overseeing the race and manning the stop watch and printers. Thanks to Lou Lourdeau who kindly shared these action-packed photos!
The skamparoos having some fun
The BHOSA appreciates the support of our local businesses and all its members who worked behind the scenes to ensure the enjoyment and comfort of our guests.
Find the original Krans sign at the BH Museum on the south side of the village
The organizers of this race wanted to give it a Swedish flair. They called it a “Stomp” and took inspiration for its logo from a wooden sign painted by Olof Krans for the John August Noyd Boot and Shoe Store. Ever since, the winners of the Stomp are awarded a wooden boot. This year the boots were carved and donated by Paul Terpening of Geneseo, IL. Thank you Paul.

This race is for you. Thanks for your participation.
