A family friendly run and walk for all ages, supporting a good cause!
This event has passed.
Are you ready to join the craziest 5K and Fun Walk of the year? A unique race experience for the whole family AND it supports The Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford & Cecil Counties. 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!
Absolutely! Bring baby along for the run! The Ma & Pa Trail is easily navigated with a stroller.
This is a 5K race (3.1 miles) so any child registered should be able to complete this distance. Children 12 and under can register as “pigs” and children ages 13 and older should register as runners.
Race packet pick-up information will be emailed to registered participants prior to race day. We will also post the information on our Facebook event page. Packet pick-up dates and times vary but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to pick this up prior to race day.
