Don’t be fooled by the name – You will not be running up Bacon Hill! This beautiful course winds through scenic farm country. USATF Sanctioned, accurately measured and includeschip timing. Additional family members registering for the 5k/10k receive $5 off! (Does not apply to fun run). The 5K is on a paved road and is fairly flat, (except for the "dip" down to where the "Old Stone Bridge" used to be). Stonebridge Road will be closed to traffic. The 10K has some hills and portions are on dirt roads (not a trail-type run, just an upaved surface.) Overall male and female winners for both races receive a $50 gift certificate to "iRun Local" in Saratoga. The first place male & female winners for age group divisions (5 year increments from 14 and under to 80+) receive a homemade apple or cherry pie! 2nd & 3rd place age group finishers receive homemade cookies. All runners receive a cup of King's chocolate milk, homemade goodies and fruit at the finish line!
The first 300 registered participants for either the 5K or the 10K receive a performance T-Shirt.
Proceeds benefit the Bacon Hill Church Steeple Repair Fund, with 10% going to The Town of Northumberland to enhance a park or trail.
We look forward to seeing you there! It's a great race for a great cause with some of the friendliest volunteers you will ever meet!!
