Catch a Pig 5K & Bacon Stroll 1k

Welcome to the 7th 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 few minutes head start on the pack.  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 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.  Let people know you ain't afraid of no swine!  

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 aged 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 Doggone Chasin' a Pig 5k). Dogs must be registered (just $10) and on a leash. They get a cool CAP5k neckerchief! 


COVID notes:  We will be using COVID guidelines 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.
