Don’t be fooled by the name – You will not be running up Bacon Hill! This beautiful course winds through scenic farm country at the top of Bacon Hill.  Our race is USATF Sanctioned, the courses are USATF certified, and we have chip timing by GreenLeaf Racing. 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 includes portions that are on dirt roads (not a trail-type run, just an upaved surface.)  Overall male and female winners for both races receive a $100 cash prize.  The first place male & female winners for age group divisions (5 year increments from 14 and under to 80+) receive a homemade apple pie! The apples are donated by local Saratoga Apple Orchard. 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 T-Shirt.

Thanks to the support of this race for the first four years, (along with other fundraisers and the generosity of friends and family of our church), the church steeple and renovation project is paid for in full! This year's proceeds will once again benefit the Bacon Hill Church Organ Fund, with 10% going to the Schuylerville Area Caring and Sharing Program which assists local students in need of school supplies, coats, Holiday gifts, and emergency help.

There will be a raffle of local items including race entries, gift certificates to restaurants and even a home-made pie!  One free ticket to every participant. Tickets can also be purchased on site at registration Friday night before the race as well as Race Day.

Due to insurance reasons, NO Dogs Allowed - sorry!

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!!
