Catch-A-Pig 5K

About
The Catch-A-Pig 5K and 1k Bacon Stroll is a huge ALL-LOCAL race that benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford and Cecil Counties. It’s a wonderful event for runners but even more so for FAMILIES! This is one of the only area races where KIDS can race and be part of the fun! We are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year! Race date is Sunday, August 21 at 8 a.m. and it all happens on the Ma & Pa trail in Bel Air. Last year we had over 150+ runners and families attend and join in the fun. We’ve raised over $55,000 since starting this event. Here’s the CATCH – It’s a CHASE! The “pigs,” children 12 and under, get a head start on the race. After three minutes, registered runners try to “catch” the pigs by passing them along the route. But look out! Seven minutes later, the “wolves” are released! The wolves are local running scholars who are out to pass everybody. As long as you pass at least one pig and not get passed by all the wolves, you’re eligible to win prizes from one of many awesome local donors, including running stores, restaurants, breweries, and more. Join us for this unique benefit race experience. Sign up today!
