4th Annual Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog
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:
Whole Hog or Half Hog?
The gastrointestinally brave can register in the “Whole Hogger Division,” which involves eating six pepperoni balls at the race’s halfway point. Those who are less confident in their eating ability can register in the “Half Hogger Division,” which involves eating three pepperoni balls.
This is an out and back course. The race will start at the Beach #1 parking area. Runners will jog 2 miles along scenic beach road, which will be closed to traffic. Eating will take place at the Beach #6 parking area. Participants will then run, walk or waddle back along the same route, finishing at Beach #1.
