I signed up for the Piggy Trot!

What: The 8th Annual Piggy Trot

Where: Dowses Beach, Osterville, MA

When: May 21, 2017

The Piggy Trot has become one of my favorite events every spring and this year I will be back for my 7th straight!  The race falls only one week before the Buffalo Half Marathon and like last year, I will use it as a tune up to practice race morning routines.  Run comfortably fast—hopefully with my coworker Eric—and avoid the urge to race for the pig trophy.

If you are unfamiliar with the Piggy Trot, it’s a 3.7 mile race through beautiful Osterville, MA that starts and finishes at Dowses Beach.  The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope puts on the race and Cape Cod Rehab has been a sponsor for 7 (maybe even 8?!) years.  Glenna (nicknamed “Piggy”) was a Town of Barnstable lifeguard who passed away from Melanoma at a very young age and her charity raises money and awareness in her honor.  One of their missions is to support and protect Cape Cod lifeguards by supplying sunscreen and putting up shade canopies on lifeguard stands.

T-shirts and swag bags with full size sunscreen are given to the first 200 registrants.  The race also features cash prizes, pig trophies, age group medals and a ton of great raffles.

Join me on May 21st by registering through the Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope website.  They also take monetary donations if you are unable to attend.
