About This Event
5th Annual Piggy's 5K Run/Walk will be held Saturday November 19, 2016 starting at 2:00p.m. in Waltham at City Streets, at their NEW LOCATION, 411 Waverley Rd.,. This race is in loving memory of a wonderful man that we suddenly lost 5 years ago. Paul (Piggy) Logue was born, raised and a lifelong resident of Waltham. Paul loved the Waltham community and therefore we thought this was fitting to raise money and give back to the community through the Paul Logue Charitable Fund. This course is a fairly flat 3.1 miles (5K). The course is paved, therefore strollers or baby joggers are allowed on the course. This year the race is proud to be part of the Race Around Waltham Series (RAW) which encourages support of all Waltham races and promotes friendly competition by tracking runners, walkers and volunteers who participate in 7 Waltham races for additional prizes. Runners and walkers welcome -- tell your friends and bring the kids! Post-race party will be held at City Streets, 411 Waverley Oaks Rd., in Waltham immediately following the award ceremony. Please come and help us celebrate our fifth annual run in Paul (Piggy) Logue's memory! Food, raffles and fun!!
