Update Race Information

35th Annual 18K Hogpen Hill Climb and 5K Piglet Run

There is also a 5K loop race around Unicoi Lake beginning at the Park beach house area at 9:30 a.m. The awards ceremony will be at the Park beach house immediately after each race. Other features of the races are: 1) digital timing (no hassling with finish cards and shivering pens), 2) baggage check-in for those in the 18K that want some warm clothes at the finish atop Hogpen Gap and 3) shuttle buses from the finish of the 18K back to the beach house (family, friends and spectators can ride the buses to the finish of the 18K - no cars allowed in the parking lot at the finish!, 4) a quality race event shirt. All proceeds of the races go to fund operating expenses (i.e. building houses) for the Northeast Georgia Habitat for Humanity.

Stay at the Unicoi Lodge either the night before or the night of the races, or both. Further info at www.gastateparks.org/unicoi or call (800) 573-9659. PROMO discount code "Hogpen"
