Only in Bucks County: 5th Annual Uncle Dave’s Ice Cream Jog ‘n Hog

 There's an event that I photograph every July that's so unique I can't find my own words to describe it. It's called Jog 'n Hog, and runners from all over Pennsylvania and New Jersey gather to run two miles, stop and hog down an entire quart of ice cream, then take off and run another two miles. Some wear tutus. Some wear pig costumes. Others bring sprinkles and syrup. Registration begins today!

Here is some information straight from the Jog n' Hog website, since they say it best:

 "The third Sunday in July is National Ice Cream Day. Some people celebrate by going to the local ice cream stand and maybe getting a free one-scoop cone. Here at Jog ‘n Hog, we’ve supersized the celebration. Coming back for its fifth installment, the Uncle Dave’s Ice Cream Jog ‘n Hog will take place on Sunday July 17, 2016. Over the past four years we have served over 200 gallons of Uncle Dave’s finest vanilla ice cream, which comes out to over 1.3 million calories!

The gastrointestinally brave can register in the “Whole Hogger Division,” which involves eating one quart of ice cream at the race’s halfway point. Those who are less confident in their eating ability can register in the “Half Hogger Division,” which involves eating one pint of ice cream."
Here are some of my photos from Jog n' Hog 2015. Will I see you at Jog n' Hog 2016?


Girls just wanna have fun!

So do the guys.

If you want to PIG OUT like these ladies did, you can find more information
 and a link to register for Jog n' Hog here. The race takes place at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA and features Uncle Daves Homemade Ice Cream's number one seller, Vanilla Beanie.
