3rd Annual Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog
June 14, 2014
Race Begins: 8:30am
Presque Isle State Park, Beach #1

When Boss Hog rolled into town three years ago to set up the first Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog, more than a few people told him, “Boss, you’ll never get more than 20 people to do this race.” Flash forward three years and the Jog ‘n Hog has become one of Erie’s most popular (and wackiest) traditions.

The 2014 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.

To see what a Jog ‘n Hog is all about, check out this video from 2012:
