Please Click here to see our procedure for event modifications for this event

We will be working closely with the city to implement all necessary Covid measures to have a safe in-person event.  Modifications may include removal of post race activities, wave starts, and modified courses.  We cannot predict what April will look like in terms of the current pandemic, but we are committed to doing everything we can to host a live event.  Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy (found both on the registration page and under our rules page) prior to signing up.  We hope to see everyone in April!

We are onto year number seven 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.

Pound some pavements and then pound some Pig Pounders!
