About This Activity

P.I.G. stands for P erseverance, I ntensity and G rit. The P.I.G. Race is Family Friendly Farm Festival Fun with 6+ events to choose from.

Each running event is in the manner of a European Style Cross Country Race and is NOT a mud run.

The Piglet 5k has 5+ Challenges, or things that you might see on the farm. Challenges are things that you run through and include the Corn Field and the Pig Sty, to name a few. This event is great for kids and family.

The Porker 8k has 5+ Challenges and 3+ Barriers, or things that you jump over or crawl under, including gates, fences, straw bales, etc. This event is great for cross country runners.

The Wild Boar 12k has 5+ Challenges, 3+ Barriers and 4+ Obstacles, or things that you climb up, through and/or over. These include The Chicken Coop and The Tractor. This event is great for the seasoned runner who is looking for an extra challenge.

Other events happening as part of the Family Farm Fest are:

The Bacon Bits is a short version of The Piglet 5k and is designed for children 6-10 yrs. Each course is less than 1/2 mile long and has a few Challenges. Come for the fun run and stay for the Horse Show!

The Piglet 5K-9 is a separate running of The Piglet 5k course specifically for dog owners and their dog. It won't be timed so don't worry if you get side tracked along the route by your dog's interest in the outdoors. All of the objectives are "dog friendly" and will be an event you look forward to every year.

The Honor Run is another untimed event. It is a 5k Evening Fun Run that honors special friends, family, partners, heroes and pets; we honor those who have passed as well as those who are living.

So be a Piglet, Porker or Wild Boar. Put on your pig snout. Put your hair in pigtails. Dress like a pig. Who cares? Show people that running puts you in hog heaven!
