Race Day Road Closures – Who Wouldn’t Want to Stay Home?

A big thank you to the residents of the Grand Cities, especially those who live along the Wild Hog Race course. You’re what makes this marathon memorable for participants, particularly those who travel from far and wide to be here. The support of the community has positively impacted the economy by over $250,000 last year and it’s what enables us to donate $30,000 each year to local charities that benefit the local youth.

To help minimize any inconvenience of our short-term road closures, we have provided a map of the course to show exactly when your neighborhood will be busy. If you’re looking to support the runners during the race, consider setting up a cheer zone in your front yard with family and friends. Thank you again for your support of this fantastic event and we look forward to seeing you on race day, it’s sure to be one of the best yet!

Running Hog Wild Inspired! – The Haug Family

We could not be more thrilled with how this annual community event has helped us accomplish our mission of supporting active, healthy lifestyles to enhance the quality of life in the Grand Cities. The marathon weekend would not be possible without the hard work and dedication from the countless volunteers, coordinators, participants, and community members.

One particularly incredible addition to the race over the past few years is our Medical Director, Dr. Billy Haug, and his team of medical volunteers – they truly are life-savers! In addition to the medical side, this community event has meant a lot to Dr. Haug and his son, Sam, who also have participated in the Friday Family Fun Run for the past 2 years.
