Jog ‘n Hog to Challenge the Stomachs of
Philadelphia-Area Runners on July 15
YARDLEY, Pa. – Run, eat, run. That’s the simple premise behind the inaugural Uncle Dave’s Ice Cream Jog n’ Hog, a fun and slightly crazy event that will challenge participants’ bodies, minds…and stomachs.
Here’s how it works: Runners will jog 2 miles on Shady Brook Farm in Bucks County, stop and eat a quart of Uncle Dave’s vanilla ice cream and then run two miles back to the starting line on expanded stomachs.
The Jog ‘n Hog will be held on Sunday, July 15 (National Ice Cream Day!) at
8:30 a.m. It is open to everyone age 13 and up.
Children under age 13 can run the Junior Hogger, which consists of dashing 100 yards, eating a 3-ounce cup of Uncle Dave’s ice cream and dashing back 100 yards. The Junior Hogger starts at 10 a.m. All participants receive a race t-shirt.
Registration for the Jog ‘n Hog is now open at www.jognhog.com. Jog ‘n Hog is a proud supporter of the Bucks County Housing Group’s Penndel Food Pantry. All racers are asked to bring a non-perishable food item with them on race day.
To add to the fun, all racers are invited to submit a 30-second video showing how they are training for the Jog ‘n Hog. Videos can be uploaded to www.facebook.com/jognhog. The person whose video receives the most “likes” will have his or her race fee waived.
