Description

 

Don’t be fooled by the name – You will not be running up Bacon Hill!

 

We are excited to announce that we are part of the 2019 USATF Adirondack Grand Prix Race Series, and also the Saratoga Stryders Grand Prix Series!!

 
This beautiful course winds through scenic farm country at the top of Bacon Hill. 

*** The 10K course will no longer be using Peck Lane.  To replace it, there will be an out & back heading north on Stonebridge Road during the first half mile of the race - mostly flat....one less hill!!

This race will have chip timing & scoring by Green Leaf Racing. The 5K is on a paved road which 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.)  

The first 300 registered participants for either the 5K or the 10K receive a T-Shirt. Additional family members registering for the 5k/10k receive $5 off! (Does not apply to fun run).

 

Overall male and female winners for both races receive a Prize Basket including a Homemade Pie, Bacon, Milk, Eggs, other local gifts and gift certificates.  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 a local orchard, Saratoga Apple. 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!

 

There will be a raffle of local items including race entries, gift certificates to restaurants, home-made pie, carrot cake and more!  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.

 

Thanks to the support of this race for the first six 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 Repair Fund, with 10% going to a local charity.

 

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!!

 

Prizes will be Raffled On Site Race Day

Several Local-Themed Prizes will be Raffled that morning - You do not need to be present to win!  Each participant will receive a free raffle ticket for prizes that include entries to races, gift certificates to local restaurants, even a home-made pie!!  Additional tickets will be available for purchase.
