One of the founders of the Jog ‘n Hog national race series e-mailed me to say that the second annual Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog has been scheduled for June 15 and and on the first day of registration you can sign up to participate at a discounted price.

Registration opens Saturday, which happens to be Groundhog Day, and for 24 hours only the price will be $18, said Erie native Brian Smith. On Sunday, the cost rises to $25. It goes up again on April 1 to $30 and climbs on June 1 to $35.

Those prices are for the whole hogger, which requires you to run two miles on Presque Isle State Park, eat six pepperoni balls, and run back two miles. The half hogger requires consumption of just three pepperoni balls and the price for it rises to $22 on Sunday, $27 on April 1 and $32 on June 1.

Your registration also gets you a race T-shirt and a coupon for a dozen free Stanganelli’s pepperoni balls.
