If you think you have the stomach for it, sign up for the race scheduled for Sunday, July 19 and prove it to your friends and family! If you feel like it’s an impossible feat, spectating can be just as fun. The drama, suspense and excitement of the annual Jog n’ Hog Race can never be matched.

Shady Brook Farm is located at 931 Stony Hill Road, Yardley, PA, 19067.
