By Brian Slattery

While Punxatawny, Pa. waits for a groundhog to see its shadow, Leland runners will chase the Whistle Pig.

Leland Parks and Recreation will host the second annual Whistle Pig 5K race and one mile fun run/walk on Saturday, February 1 at 9 a.m. at the Westgate Nature Park.

Looking for a different way to introduce the public to the Westgate Nature Park, Leland Parks and Recreation decided to host a 5K on Groundhog Day weekend. Groundhog Day is Sunday, Feb. 2.

Whistle Pig is a different way of saying groundhog and the event is a different kind of 5K.
