4th Annual Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog
June 13, 2015
Race Begins: 8:30am
Presque Isle State Park, Beach #1

With over 3,000 balls and 300,000 calories consumed over the past 3 years, Erie’s wackiest tradition returns for the fourth installment of the Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog. Quickly becoming a must-do race, the 2015 edition of the Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog promises to be bigger and better than ever. And we’ve kept all of the same traditions our runners have come to love – the Pace Pig, the hidden $50 bacon balls, the Whole/Half Hogger divisions, and the unique pig trophies. Don’t delay, the earlier you sign up the cheaper the price. You don’t want to miss the all-American spectacle that is Jog ‘n Hog.
