Short review

Welcome to the 9th annual Catch a Pig (CAP) 5K – this is a great opportunity to have a unique race experience AND support The Boys & Girls Club of Harford County!

The race is an out-and-back along the MA & PA Trail.  1K Bacon Stroll walkers are invited to join in the fun! 

The kicker: THIS IS A CHASE!  We’ll have young runners dressed in pink pig shirts (a.k.a. "the piglets").  They will have a three minutes head start on the adult runners.  Those who pass at least one of the piglets before crossing the finish line get their name into a special drawing for prizes.  BUT LOOK OUT!  There are also a few BIG, BAD WOLVES who will get a late (seven minute) jump on you.  If they all pass you, you'll lose the opportunity for the special drawing.

Medals will be given to the top 3 male, female and pig finishers.  All Bacon Stroll walkers will receive a commemorative Bacon Button.

For a small fee get the official CAP technical t-shirt!  We're offering a technical shirt with our Catch a Pig 5K logo.  

All proceeds after costs will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Harford County.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 AND WANT TO BE ONE OF OUR PIGLETS: We are accepting runners under the age of 13 to take off first.  These young ones get a FREE pig t-shirt.

Bring your pup! Sign him/her up to join you (sign them up under the dog option). Dogs must be registered (just $10) and on a leash. They get a cool CAP5k neckerchief! 

 

COVID notes:  If necessary, we will be using COVID guidelines as we did in 2020, such as spaced corralled starts, mandatory masks at the race site until the start of the race, and limiting all other activities (no group warm-up, no food, no post-race gathering).  Marks on the ground (chalked “X’s”) will designate appropriate spacing while runners wait to begin. Marks will be 6 feet apart.
