Pig Pounder 5K


This is the fourth year this event has been a part of the Race the Bar Series, and it has regularly been one of the largest events in the series!  We are revamping the course in 2018 slightly and we think you will like the new course just as much as the old one!  We are looking at some changes to the entertainment for 2018, so keep your eyes peeled to the website to see what fun running community event will be associated with The Pig Pounder 5K this year!

Each registrant will receive a 2018 finishers glass, custom Pig Pounder 5K shirt, live results, 2 free beers, and an awesome race!
