Here’s more info from the race directors:
Pepperoni ball lovers rejoice – the 3rd annual Stanganelli’s Pepperoni Ball Jog ‘n Hog will be held on June 14 at 8:30 a.m. at Presque Isle State Park.
Here’s how the race works: Runners start at Beach 1 on Presque Isle and run out two miles to the Beach 6 parking area where they stop and eat either six or three pepperoni balls. Participants will then run back two miles to the starting line on expanded stomachs.
The Jog ‘n Hog is open to everyone age 10 and up. All runners receive a t-shirt and a coupon for six free Stanganelli’s pepperoni balls (in addition to the balls they will eat on the course). For more details and to register visit www.jognhog.com/events/erie.
Like last year, the gastrointestinally brave can register in the “Whole Hogger Division,” which involves eating six pepperoni balls at the race’s halfway point. Those who are less confident in their eating ability can register in the “Half Hogger Division” (3 balls).
Racers who form teams of 12 or more people will each receive an additional $5 refund off their registration after the race. Teams are limited to 20 people.
