Pig Pounder 5K


Our 2020 race will be a “Virtually Real” timed 5k starting at Pig Pounder Brewery. The course will be a running route selected to be accurate and safe without closing roads (due to current event restrictions). Runners and walkers who want to compete in-person on our marked course for a chip-timed race result will be allowed to start anytime between 12 noon and 5:00pm on race day. You will be required to select your starting time window to limit the number of people at the start line at any given time. Anyone not comfortable participating in-person has the option to switch to the virtual race, run at a place and time of their choosing, and earn their race shirt and finisher medal. 

Here are a few other changes we’re making to the event for safety reasons due to the continuing concern of COVID-19 in our community:

  • Participants will receive 1 ticket for a post-run beer
  • Participants will be required to wear a face mask at all times, except when they are running or consuming food or drink
  • Social distancing will be enforced at the start/finish line and is highly encouraged along the course
  • Packets will be pre-packed to include race bib, shirt, and finisher medal and will be available onsite during your selected starting window
  • Anyone who feeling sick, who has been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or who has a pending or positive COVID-19 test result will not be allowed to participate
  • Results will not be available onsite, but will be immediately available online through the race website 

We are onto year number six of one of our favorite 5K’s!  The Pig Pounder 5K offers a fun, fast and USATF Certified course, with an awesome after party!   Come on out for this fun afternoon 5K with post race beer, family-friendly activities, and awesome prizes. This is a stroller-friendly race, so bring the kids along! All racers will get an awesome custom race shirt, race photos, live music, awesome prizes, and our over 21 years old will get 2 Pig Pounder beers! Pound some pavements and then pound some Pig Pounders!
